AVI-SPL Gears Up for Summer Institute for Technology Integration 2012

AVI-SPL’s national marketing campaign will attract educators to our beautiful coastline in Pinellas County for SiTi (Summer Institute for Technology Integration), encouraging participants to combine learning with a great beach/sightseeing vacation!

We’re excited to announce that Dunedin Highland Middle School of Pinellas County Schools has been chosen as the host site for the 2012 SiTi, July 22 – 26.

As an attendee of our 2012 SiTi, you’ll have the opportunity to:

• Increase your confidence teaching with common technology tools
• Create lessons infused with Higher Order Thinking Strategies for immediate use
• Learn the coaching model for technology integration
• Gain valuable technology leadership skills
• Transform into a top-notch TechXtraordinary Teacher!

The series will be led by Dr. Jennifer Brown King, author of TechXtraordinary Integration (TXI) for Pearson Custom Publishing. Through King’s inspirational work, TXI emphasizes how to integrate technology through a unique scaffolding technique called the Technology Integration Plan (TIP), designed to layer course planning and technology tools in a practical and meaningful way to impact both teaching and learning.

The picturesque town of Dunedin, Fla., with waterfront accommodations and a nationally recognized downtown, was chosen to welcome educators to the event. Attendees will have  an opportunity to combine a fun getaway with a unique professional development experience. This is a great opportunity to build a vacation around our 2012 SiTi by exploring Dunedin and all it has to offer: a beautiful downtown voted “most walkable small city,”  Honeymoon and Caladesi Islands, as well as the Pinellas Trail and Trolley, to mention a few. The movie Dolphin Tale, which was filmed in this area, has created a spotlight on North Pinellas County.  AVI-SPL will shine our own spotlight on Pinellas County School District as a national education leader in technology integration.
