On Wednesday, March 4th through Friday, March 6th, 30 Newton-Conover City Schools employees traveled to the Raleigh Convention Center to attend North Carolina’s premier Educational Technology conference, NCTIES.
NCTIES, or North Carolina Technology in Education Society, takes place annually and is NC’s state-wide conference affiliate with the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE). Each year, over 150 sessions are offered from among hundreds of excellent session applications, and thousands of educators and administrators from across the nation attend.
N-CHS Science Teacher David Schouweiler, and N-CCS ITF Jamie Frye presented a session on Thursday, entitled “2 Students, 1 Device.” This session was focused on guiding teachers and administrators to understand the benefits of a 2:1 device framework — and how to effectively utilize them.
N-CCS’ own Director of Technology and Accountability, Cindy Geddes and Chief Academic Officer, Heather Mullins also completed a presentation for district and school leaders that shared methods for streamlining workflows and increasing productivity.
