Marion County Public Schools will host its third annual i-2 Conference for educational innovation Tuesday, January 16 at Marion County High School. The conference includes a variety of workshop sessions, many of which focus on the implementation of technology in the classroom.
“This has become a tremendous event for Marion County Public Schools,” Superintendent Taylora Schlosser said. “I really believe it’s one of the things that separates us from other school districts.”
The event offers a variety of sessions, with many of them being led by MCPS teachers and administrators; others will be led by presenters from outside of the district. Each attendee registered for three of the approximately 45-minute workshops.
“This is a day where our teachers and staff get the opportunity to grow professionally, but also, for those presenting, to share some really important ideas in how we can innovate Marion County Public Schools,” Schlosser added.
The day will include three guest speakers: Robin Kanaan from KnowledgeWorks, a national organization dedicated to working with schools to create innovative learning environments; Jeff Sebulsky from the Kentucky Department of Education; and Officer Robert Purdy, who is the public affairs officer for the Kentucky State Police.
“We’re not sending our teachers to training, we’re bringing the training to our teachers,” Schlosser said. “I want MCPS to be a leader in everything we do, including how we grow professionally.”
