  • background

    The Summer Learning Academy was a rare professional development opportunity that allowed me to walk away with various tools that I could put into action immediately at my school. I was able to meet leaders in technology education that inspired me to be more creative and intentional with lessons. Each day, I walked away … with a call to action in my education practices.

    This has been the most meaningful and motivating PD I have had in a long time! I can't wait to apply what has been shared!

    I have to say, ISTE is like the Wonka Factory, churning out magical solutions that address spot-on the needs of districts, leaders and teachers! Seriously, this is exactly what our teachers need, and I see many well-intentioned state and national groups trying to do the same thing but with far less coherence and with nowhere near the capacity and expertise ISTE brings to the table.

    I love and recommend the Summer Learning Academy for all the teaching strategies provided. I started using these strategies right away in my online classes.
