On Saturday, Lewis Elementary hosted Educate Engage 2016. The event was organized by Melissa Lim (@actionhero) of Portland Public Schools, and sponsored by Portland Public School and Concordia University, and was inspired by a similar event, ENGAGE 2015 Parent Tech Conference, put on last fall by several suburban Chicago school districts.
Educate/Engage 2016 was described as
“an opportunity to hear from teachers about the roles and implications of technology both in and out of today's modern classroom.”
It was a great event and the parents that attended indicated they appreciated the opportunity to learn and discuss with educators, the opportunities and challenges that technology can present in a school setting.
It was also nice to see so many of our regional education leaders lend their time and expertise to the event. A big thank you to all that took part.
