We’re excited to share that on June 8th-9th the BVSD Ed Tech and Innovation departments will host Innovate@BVSD: An Innovative Professional Learning and 21st Century Festival.

This two-day event will include a furniture expo, workshop sessions on student learning and engagement, presentations from local makerspace companies, and visionary presentations on the impact of classroom design on learning. Innovate@BVSD lends direct support to the BVSD Success Effect in developing talent by fueling innovation, discovery, and exploration for our educators. There will also be great raffle prizes--including iPads, Chromebooks and Sphero robot!

Workshop sessions, led by BVSD educators, leaders and innovation vendors, cover a wide-range of topics such as developing makerspaces, leading student passion projects, teaching in the digital age, and more! You can see the entire session listing on the Innovate@BVSD site.

We encourage BVSD staff to attend professional development like Innovate@BVSD for learning, collaboration, application, and reflection of new ideas for teaching and student engagement!

Find out more information about Innovate@BVSD on the website, including registration for BVSD and out-of-district participants!
