“Through the work of Conference Chair Linda Wiltfong and the planning committee, local educators are heading back to school with new knowledge and additional excitement to implement the Indiana Department of Education’s computer science standards. We are proud to be part of the community lifting up teachers and showing appreciation for their important work,” said Maggi Spartz, President of Unity Foundation.
The free conference will feature Matt Miller, author of Ditch that Textbook and Tech Like a Pirate.
Matt’s passion is to equip educators to thrive in this new era of education and think differently about the craft of teaching. He spent more than a decade in the classroom, creating unique learning experiences for his students through technology and creative teaching. He provides practical, “use it in class tomorrow” solutions to teachers’ classroom needs.
