Lesson Crashers

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Participants will adopt the """"Lesson Crash"""" model, take it to their home districts, and make it their own. Participants will recast their """"coaching"""" into """"crashing"""". Like in the TV show, Yard Crashers, I.T. Crashers will meet teachers where they are, help them on projects they are already working on, and celebrate every tiny success along the way. This will be documented via audio and video, packaged as a mini-TV series in their districts, and played to celebrate the wonderful tech integration happening in every classroom. Instruction Technology will become the celebrated P.R. that teachers have been looking for. Even though most campuses and districts reward a single teacher of the year, Lesson Crashers will help reveal and celebrate the variety of talent hiding in each and every school hallway. Do you have a lesson you want to trash!? Get it Crashed!!!

Our program seeks out great teachers who have identified an area of weakness where a little tech could really help. The entire Crash event is a celebration of strengths, commitment to student achievement, and the recasting of Instructional Technology in education as a team effort from top to bottom.
