Teachers across Greenville County and the Upstate have already gone “back to school” at the GCS Upstate Technology Conference. Hosted by the Instructional Technology Department and Educational Technology Services, about 800 teachers, administrators, and other instructional leaders from across the Southeast attended two days of professional development in hands-on technology sessions at the 2014 Upstate Technology Conference.
Participants chose from over 130 different sessions focusing on hundreds of technology topics including Google Sites, blogging, and iPads in the Classroom. Some of the most innovative teachers and leaders in our district and community shared how they integrate technology into their classrooms, provided training for popular technology devices, and networked with other like-minded educators.
Following the Upstate Technology Conference, educators from Greenville County Schools are invited to attend Summer Academy sessions, held June 16 - 26, where they will be given the opportunity to enrich and extend their skills in a variety of two and six hour sessions. Based on the five academic priorities of Greenville County Schools, each session is designed for educators to gain new techniques, sharpen their skills, and learn from innovative practitioners. Most of the Summer Academy sessions will be held at Wade Hampton High School.
