This is how I remember one of my initial conversations with Teresa Stringer and Stacy when we first began discussing what a Custom Summit for Irvine Unified School District might look like. What you don’t know is that Teresa is the Induction Program Coordinator (a 2 year program required for all CA educators to clear their credential), so by “all of them”, they were essentially pitching the idea of Global Summit format, only customized for the needs and interest of their first and second year teachers and administrators.
Fast forward 5 months and 435 Educators later. What started as a potential 150 - 200 attendee event for new teachers, exploded into a quarter of the district teachers investing their own time, on a weekend, to learn from a group of passionate EdTechTeam speakers, along with a handful of IUSD rockstar teachers. I could go on and on about how much fun it is to have the energy and enthusiasm of IUSD’s new teachers, veteran teachers, district administration, Student Helpers, tech department, and Superintendent, all coming together under the awesomeness of learning that is an EdTechTeam Summit. Instead I will let the event photo album and “By the Numbers” infographic, speak for itself.
