EduTech Family Summit in Boston
Microsoft Achieve 2013: EduTech Family Summits, in collaboration with YouthSpark, invites you to join them and explore how to best support our students in their quest for academic and career success by using innovative technology to learn and achieve. They're expecting over 2,000 students, educators, community leaders and local government representatives to participate in this exciting one-day event.
Where: University of Massachusetts Boston Campus Center
When: Saturday, January 26th, 8:00am-2:00pm
At the EduTech Family Summits, participants will discuss how using technologies like Microsoft Windows, Office 365, SkyDrive, Bing, Skype in the Classroom, and Kinect enhance not only what our students learn but how they learn. Also discover how Microsoft’s Partners in Learning Network and the Innovative Educators program support making our classrooms dynamic and fun learning environments that increase student engagement.
The theme for the Summit is Achieve. The keynote speaker, Victor Ortiz – a protégée of Oscar de La Hoya and one of the brightest stars in boxing today – exemplifies what it means to Achieve. Overcoming a difficult childhood, Victor aims to inspire, mentor and support our youth to believe they can achieve great things.
