K-5th Grade AZ Teachers Gather for Digital Collaboration at AZ SMART Content Summit

It’s a very exciting week for more than 60 teachers across Arizona! That’s how many K-5th grade Arizona teachers are gathering for an intensive two-day conference focusing on elementary content creation.

CCS Presentation Systems and SMART Technologies are hosting the two-day content creation event “SMART™ Elementary Content Creation Summit” at the Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale, AZ. More than 60 kindergarten – 5th grade teachers applied earlier in the year to secure a spot at this very special event, which will focus on best practices for building digital interactive lessons and new audio-visual solutions based on Common Core State Standards.K-5th Grade AZ Teachers

Over the course of two days, elementary school educators will create interactive and engaging lessons with SMART Notebook software. To promote collaboration to its fullest levels of excellence, teachers attending the SMART Content Creation Summit will work together with peers of the same grade-level/content area. Among the tools that they will use include the new SMART collaborative learning table, SMART’s new interactive LCD display and the world’s first touch-enabled projector.

An extra highlight for the teachers is that motivational speaker Kurt Schwengel, known for his education movement “Occupy Kindergarten” will speak on Wed., June 19. Schwengel has taught Kindergarten in Santa Monica since 1995 and his Ted Talk on Occupy Kindergarten has reached thousands of teachers across the country.

The SMART Content Creation Summit is being held on:
Date: June 18th & 19th
Location: Talking Stick Resort and Casino – Scottsdale, AZ
