Event description

Description


Come and join our community of innovative teachers, leaders and thinkers!

The Innovative Teaching Co-op Monthly Meetup is a free event series in which educators will have the opportunity to collaborate around great teaching and the sophisticated use of digital resources to innovate our schools and prepare students for success. Instructional Technology Coaches from Educate will be on hand to facilitate conversation, provide resources, and share best practices.

Space and refreshments will be generously provided by this month's sponsoring host Newsela.

Action-Oriented Learning
No lectures, we promise. Our goal is to meet you where you are with technology in the classroom and help you get where you want to go to meet your students’ needs. We’ll make sure there is plenty of time for you to start applying your learning, and that you leave each session with next steps you’ll want to try out in your classroom right away.

Coaching From Experts
Your event facilitators will host conversations, drive research, and lend their expertise, with plenty of opportunities to learn in the way that best suits you. Our experts have experience using a plethora of digital learning tools and strategies in a variety of different settings. After the event, you will be invited to be part of a supported online community, so we can continue to help you move forward in your practice.

Community of Educators and Innovators
Meet other educators who are interested in exploring new tools and strategies. Share and listen to stories of real classrooms during guided conversations.
We will also have built-in opportunities for teachers to network with other teachers and folks from innovative Edtech companies in NYC.
