Dear Curriculum Directors,

One of the Strategic Goals for 2008-2009 for the Curriculum and Instruction Section of the Utah State Office of Education is to "Increase the Use of Technology in the Day-to-Day Instruction of All Students."  Towards accomplishing this goal, USOE is hosting a Technology Fair on November 7, 2008, at the Woodrow Wilson Elementary School which is adjacent to the Granite District Office.

Please see the attachments regarding the Fair.  Several technology tools will be used during an actual lesson, grade appropriate, for both elementary and secondary grades and covering various content areas.

The second attachment is the proposed schedule of presenters.  Jim Vanides will be the keynote speaker on "Re-Imaging the Classroom."  There will be 4 sessions throughout the day with 7 presentations during each time slot.  A panel discussion will close the day and is aimed at keeping children safe on the internet.   This schedule is subject to minor changes, at this time, due to presenter needs, and etc.  Final details will be e-mailed the week of October 27th.

District leaders, content leaders, and key teachers are encouraged to attend.

USOE will provide materials, lunch, and 6 licensure points (at the end of the day) to those who attend.
This promises to be an informative day for all!

Please rsvp as soon as possible if you plan to attend. E-mail patty.hunt at schools.utah.gov<mailto:patty.hunt at schools.utah.gov>.
See you there!

NOTE: Meeting Minutes for the October 7 Curriculum Directors' meeting are available on the Curriculum Directors' web page.  The video of Andrew Clark's presentation is being edited and should be available soon.
