NCCE will host U.S. Virgin Island Educators to ISTE 2014 as part of a Three Year “Teaching to Improve Technology and Learning” Project
(Coeur d’Alene, Idaho) – June 26, 2014, Northwest Council for Computer Education (NCCE) is excited to bring over 50 teachers, administrators, professional development specialists, and staff to the ISTE 2014 Conference. Many of these conference participants are attending ISTE in conjunction with a three-year Technology to Improve Teaching and Learning (TITL) collaborative project with NCCE and the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI) Department of Education.
The goals of TITL include the development and implementation of teacher and administrator expertise in technology integration into classroom instruction and developing a plan for the U USVI which includes layers of professional development for school-based administrators and teachers at various levels of technology integration expertise.
“Such a great opportunity for NCCE and St. Thomas educators and administrators! In addition to the ISTE Conference, participants in the TITL grant will receive 2.5 days of pre-conference professional development focused on the use of technology in the classroom, from educators throughout the United States.” Becky Firth, NCCE Director of Professional Development stated. “Look for our tweets at #NCCEatISTE and other social networking posts throughout the next week,” she added.
The ISTE 2014 Conference and Expo held in Atlanta, Georgia, June 28-July 1, will have nearly 18,000 educators, education leaders and corporate representatives from around the globe. NCCE is an affiliate of ISTE and Heidi Rogers, CEO/Executive Director of NCCE, is a past ISTE president.
