With summer comes TCI’s Virtual Summit! Teachers around the country can join thousands of their colleagues for inspiring sessions, hands-on training, teaching best practices, a keynote, and more. The free event, “TCI’s Bring Learning Alive! Virtual Summit,” is on July 28 from 9 am – 12:30 pm PT.
Participants will learn about best practices, resources, and strategies for integrating civics in their social studies and science classrooms, how to use gamification to drive student engagement and learning experiences, and strategies and best practices for building a supportive classroom community where students feel empowered, engaged, and welcomed.
“We are excited to host our summit for the third year in a row. Our planning team is working hard to ensure that teachers who attend are energized and inspired to start the 2022-2023 school year with new strategies for engaging their students and making social studies and science learning come alive in their classrooms,” said Bert Bower, founder, and co-CEO, TCI.
The summit will kick off on Thursday, July 28 at 9 am PT, with a keynote from Adam Welcome. Named a “20 to Watch” with the National School Board Association and a Principal of the Year in his region in California, Welcome empowers teachers to put kids first. He is passionate about technology integration with all educators and a huge advocate of social media and connecting with other educators from across the country. Welcome is the co-founder of Kids Deserve It and the author of four books, Kids Deserve It, Run Like A Pirate, Empower Our Girls and Teachers Deserve It.
In addition, on Wednesday, July 27, from 9 am-12: 30 pm PT, a pre-summit will feature professional development sessions for new TCI users on topics, such as making the most of TCI and connecting the curriculum to your school’s LMS.
