In the 2017-2018 school year, we have made an effort to increase frequency of teacher gatherings to create a greater sense of community, collaboration, shared resources, and experiences. To further build and enhance this initiative, our first cohort of Ed Tech Representatives have stepped up to actively seek the best practices of teaching, use of educational technology tools, and to share their findings with the rest of the community.

Ed Tech Representatives are O’Dowd educators who are catalysts for improvement, visionaries who are never content with the status quo but rather always looking for a better way (Larner, 2004). They have been nominated for their outstanding teaching, innovation in the classroom, and dedication to professional growth.

The current cohort will be attending either the Summer 2018 CUE Rockstar Conference or the Spring 2018 CUE Conference, a national gathering that focuses on emerging and existing educational innovations that enhance learning, productivity, and understanding. During the 2018-2019 school year, our Ed Tech Reps will be featured guests who will share their best practices and new findings at T3/Collaboration meetings.
