On Friday, June 20th, the Fox School District held its first summer learning conference for its teachers. The event, called Curriculum Camp: Firing up Rigor and Relevance, was designed as a day where teachers could come together to learn about technology and literacy integration with their colleagues.
More than 90 teachers from all across the district gave up a Friday of their summer vacation to participate in this free conference. The conference featured a keynote address, technology and literacy breakout sessions facilitated by Fox teachers and principals, and time for educators to collaborate and discuss the skills taught during sessions.
When speaking about Curriculum Camp, JP Prezzavento, district Instructional Technology Coordinator said, "This was a great event for our district. Teachers have been asking for professional development opportunities related to technology and literacy, so we built a day where teachers could come to learn and collaborate with their colleagues. The response from our teachers was amazing. These 90 plus educators, the presenters, and volunteers all came in on their day off to help improve teaching and learning in our district. "
