@ Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) —

250 14th Street NW, 5th Floor Boardroom
Atlanta, GA 30318
It’s the end of the year and what better time to celebrate the creativity and hard work of our fellow educators! Georgia Tech Research Institute’s Foundations for the Future (F3) is hosting a special event to showcase how our local educators are integrating technology into their classrooms in effective, engaging, and exciting ways to impact student success.
During this lively and interactive evening we will see examples from classrooms, media centers, STEM labs, and community events where students in grades PK-12 are re-imagining learning by using technology to create content, access information, collaborate in virtual learning environments, and manage online tools and resources. The showcase offers a chance for these educators to share their innovations with you in an informal setting as you enjoy refreshments and dessert.
WXIA-TV Education Reporter and Class Acts creator, Donna Lowry, will moderate a lively and informative panel discussion where district technology leaders, university researchers, and classroom teachers share their vision of contemporary teaching and learning, recognize our shortcomings, and give us a glimpse as to what’s coming next. We will end with a chance for you to participate in a question and response session.
Poster session presenters represent the following school districts: Cobb, DeKalb, Henry, Laurens, and Putnam.
