I am thrilled to be selected to present at the NSPRA 2017 National Seminar – Communicate, Collaborate, Connect!
My presentation is “Working with the Local Cable Television Station – A School District’s Perspective”. Below is a brief description
Working with the local cable channels, school districts are reaching out not only to students and parents, but to staff and community members as well. The local education channel is keeping citizens tuned-in and informed about schools and their programs. Included: TV programs produced by districts in Massachusetts.
The annual National School Public Relations Association seminar will be in San Antonio, Texas from July 9-12, 2017
Using Universal Design for Learning and Technology to Support the Whole Child will explore key issues, brain-based research, and best practices for using technology and Universal Design for Learning to support whole-child development. This presentation will empower educators to use the tenets of UDL and the technology available to them in their schools to help students develop the skills they need in the digital age.
Chelmsford Public Schools Assistant Superintendent Dr. Linda J. Hirsch, Chelmsford Public Schools Mathematics and Science Curriculum Coordinator Dr. Matthew Beyranevand, and Wilmington Public Schools Director of Technology Dr. Anne-Marie Fiore have been chosen to present at the MassCUE/MASCD spring conference at The College of the Holy Cross on March 10, 2017. Their presentation is entitled Using Universal Design for Learning and Technology to Support the Whole Child.
This one-day Leadership Conference is co-sponsored by Massachusetts Computer Using Educators (MassCUE) and MASCD (Massachusetts Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development). MassCue and MASDC recognize the benefits of a collaborative partnership that focuses on teaching and learning. Both organizations believe that each child, in each school, in each of our communities deserves to be healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged. Thus, this year the conference will focus on how leaders can leverage technology to reach the whole child.
The conference is made up of a cross section of education professionals from across the Commonwealth and surrounding states. Average attendance is 175- 200 attendees, including Superintendents, Technology Directors, Curriculum Coordinators, and classroom teachers.
