On behalf of the BPS Edtech Team, it gives me great pleasure to announce that we will be holding the 2nd annual New England Student Showcase (NESS) as part of this year’s New England 1:1 Summit. All who attended the inaugural NESS last year agreed that it was one of the highlights of the Summit. Students showcased a variety of digital creations including multi-media projects, podcasts, 3D printing, and the integration of social media tools.
The Power of Student Voice
While it’s helpful and certainly necessary to learn about 1:1 planning, implementation, and sustainability efforts from educators and administrators, nothing is more powerful than hearing student voice. The NESS is designed to connect educators with students and their teachers for an in-depth and up close look at how technology is integrated into the curriculum in meaningful and innovative ways. Attendees of the NESS will speak directly with students to learn how technology helped to enhance the learning process. Teachers will share how implementing digital tools has accelerated their pedagogy; allowing them to differentiate instruction and create personalized learning experiences for students. The NESS epitomizes what many schools are striving towards in the 21st century and that is to create a culture where everyone is learning together. With that goal in mind, the BPS Edtech Team would like to encourage teachers from throughout New England to attend this year’s NESS and share with attendees the powerful ways technology is being used in your classroom. Students presenting at NESS are invited to attend the entire Summit. The schedule for the day can be found by clicking on this link.
