Description


The road to classroom innovation isn’t always easy.

How do you traverse obstacles and lead change from within?
How do you create change in classrooms that is meaningful to students?
How do you support teachers in your organization who are resistant to change?

Join us for a conversation and interactive work session with Jennie Magiera, former CPS Tech Innovator of the Year, White House Champion of Change and Chief Technology Officer, Des Plaines School District 62, as she explores themes and highlights from her new book Courageous Edventures: Navigating Obstacles to Discover Classroom Innovation. Ten lucky participants will receive a free signed copy of the new book. Educators will leave inspired to give their students the gift of innovation heading into 2017.
