Call for Presenters Now Open!
 
We are looking for innovative teachers, administrators and education professionals who love learning to present at this year’s Innovations for Learning Conference, which will be held on June 1, 2016 at Bryan Station High School in Lexington, KY.
 
The IFL Conference is a free, one-day event that promotes the use of innovative instructional strategies that engage students to improve learning, with an emphasis on the use of technology.  Teachers, technology specialists (TRT/TIS), administrators and anyone else interested in using technology to improve student learning are encouraged to attend. The conference is sponsored by Fayette County Public Schools in partnership with the Central Kentucky Educational Cooperative and the University of Kentucky College of Education. 
 
The conference will offer both 45 minute sessions AND 20 minute mini-sessions.  Do you know a classroom teacher who has had great success with a specific project or web tool?   Do you have great examples of student work using technology?  These topics could be perfect for mini-sessions!
 
For those just who want to attend the conference, registration will open on April 18th.  However, please consider sharing your knowledge and expertise by applying to present.  Directions and more information are available on the NEW conference website.
