Education’s future is focus of MLTI Summer Institute

The 2012 Maine Learning Technology Initiative Summer Institute will focus on preparing for the future of education, in which learning is engaging and customized depending on the needs of each student, and technology is integrated safely and effectively.

Educators from Maine schools and from outside of Maine are invited to this year’s summer institute, “Architecting the Future of Education,” which takes place July 24-26 at Bowdoin College in Brunswick.

The institute will follow the same basic format as last summer’s. Participants will each select a topic-based cohort, or group of up to 15 colleagues with whom they’ll spend the three days of the institute exploring a single topic in depth.

The more than 10 cohort options include “A Farewell to the Digital Mesolithic: Resources and Spaces for Student-Centered Learning,” “Digital Citizenship: Helping Students Thrive in their Digital World,” and “8th Grade Mathematics And Then Some, Understanding Algebra Through Polynomials And Technology.”

Participants will break up their time with their cohorts with periodic “poster sessions” that will offer a quick taste of topics outside their cohort focus.

Visit the 2012 MLTI Summer Institute website for additional details, including costs. Online registration, a full agenda, and information about the keynote presentation and poster sessions will all soon be available on the website.
