Want to Go to ISTE 2016 in Denver?

If you'd like an opportunity to go to ISTE 2016 in Denver this summer (June 26-29), then you're in luck! In addition to our three Vanguard presenters, (Megan Endicott, Jessica Jackson, Kati Searcy), we will be taking SEVEN additional Vanguard members! The entire trip will be paid for by the Instructional Technology Department.

How do you get there? Well, in true Vanguard fashion, of course! In addition to be current on all of your Vanguard tasks (reflections, PD work, and TIM-Os), you will design a presentation. The topic: What Is Vanguard?

As always, the parameters of the presentation are up to you! Choose any means for demonstrating: What Is Vanguard?

Final presentations should be submitted in person or by email to me, no later than Friday, February 19. Winners will be chosen by a team from the Instructional Technology Department.

Feel free to email if there are additional questions.

Tech & Learning Live

If you have not yet received an email about attending Tech & Learning Live, you were not one of the first to respond last week. Hopefully we will have additional opportunities for everyone soon!

We are waiting on confirmation for the number of individuals who can attend on February 13. I will let you know as soon as possible if you are able to attend. If you signed up to attend, but are no longer able to, please let me know so I can remove your name from the list.




Cohorts 1, 2, 3 - Please make sure to enter your first round of TIM-O results.

Cohort 4A - As you complete the TIM-O training, you can begin with your TIM-O as well.


Reflections begin again in February. You can now post an update to your work, link to a project, etc. Please take the time to provide a thoughtful response.
