TEA & TECHNOLOGY
Thursday, September 2nd from 12 Noon -1pm
LOCATION: Curry Library Innovation Commons, Room 302 Ruffner Hall
PRESENTER: Pam Moran, Superintendent of Albemarle County Schools.
TOPIC: Contemporary Learning Tools
For the past two decades the Curry School of Education and the Albemarle County Public Schools have collaborated on a joint Curry / Albemarle Technology Infusion Program (TIP). The nation’s first K-12 Internet system that ultimately linked all 2000 of Virginia’s schools was first piloted in the Albemarle school system. Pam Moran has been a collaborator in the Curry Albemarle TIP program at every level, as a science teacher, as a principal, as assistant superintendent, and as superintendent. This year she was recognized as one of the nation’s top ten “Tech Savvy Superintendent’s” by e-School News for her pioneering work in the area of educational innovation. In this special Tea and Technology session, the Superintendent will discuss ways in which she is integrating Contemporary Learning Tools for Digital Age Learners into the Albemarle School system. This will be followed by an open discussion of possible ways in which the Albemarle Schools and the Curry School of Education might build upon the foundation of past work in future collaborations.
