The BPS EdTech Team is proud to announce an exciting new addition to this year’s New England 1:1 Summit. On Saturday, April 12th we will host the first ever New England Student Showcase at the Summit. The NESS will feature K-12 student-led presentations across all content areas. Attendees of student showcase sessions will have the opportunity to learn about the types of projects students from 1:1 environments create and how the innovative integration of educational technology is impacting their learning.
We are seeking proposals from schools throughout New England to take part in the NESS. If you currently teach in a 1:1 classroom, whether it be 1:1 iPads, Chromebooks, laptops, or BYOD environments, we’d love to highlight the work of your students and give them the opportunity to collaborate with the BPS EdTech team as student presenters. Additionally, if your school has a program similar to the BHS Help Desk, where your students are playing a role in assisting teachers and students with technology integration, please consider submitting a proposal to be presenters.
The NESS is being designed to showcase specific examples of lessons, assessments, and student exemplars which will provide attendees with ideas and inspiration to take back to their own classrooms as more and more schools work towards creating 1:1 environments.
The New England 1:1 Summit was created to focus on tools that can help students learn and grow. In keeping with the focus of the program, the student showcase will not be device specific, rather it will serve as a platform for students all throughout New England to demonstrate and promote the power of a 1:1 classroom.
