A conference to engage families in education and technology.

The Conference

Technology is changing how today’s students learn. The creativity and innovation of teachers is advancing educational opportunities – allowing students to connect with and learn from teachers, the world and each other more than ever before.

Oregon school districts are partnering to host Engage: A conference to engage families in education and technology. The conference offers families an opportunity to engage with educators about the roles and implications of technology both in and out of today’s modern classroom. A device is not necessary, but you can bring your own (laptop, tablet, smartphone) if you would like to.

Sessions topics may include:

  • How Technology is Changing Teaching and Learning
  • Social Media in Education
  • Personalized Learning
  • Coding and Computer Science
  • 21st Century Classroom Skills
  • What is STEM/STEAM?
  • Cyberbullying

21st Century Education

Our world is changing at an unprecedented pace. Our schools are equipping students for the 21st century. Skills like critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity will be essential for students to take on the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead in today’s world.
