Educators Attend Powerful Learning Conference in New Prague
Several USC educators attended the Powerful Learning Conference in New Prague on Nov. 16. Training opportunities included, but were not limited to, sessions on personalized learning, quick-feedback assessment tools, inquiry-based learning, and using technology to build empathy among students.
The district can take special pride in knowing that three USC teachers led workshops at this year’s conference. In addition to attending sessions, RIta Augustine and Laura Johnson presented “Blogs, Rubrics, and Other Bells & Whistles,” while math educator Jennifer Bye presented “The Flipped Classroom.”
