The event was conceived after feedback from both the parent technology survey and district community survey showed that parents want to learn more about the district’s STEM initiatives as well as Digital Conversion said STEM Instructional Facilitator Anissa Angier.

“This event is an opportunity for families to become more knowledgeable about STEM, learn how it is being used in the district and discover ideas on extending STEM activities at home” said Angier. “There are also multiple sessions for parents to learn about the new technology being used in the district.”

Among the topics to be discussed at the event are the following:

  • “How to Use Canvas as a Parent”
  • “How to Support STEM at Home”
  • “Chromebooks in the Classroom”
  • “IPads in the Classroom”
  • “Creating a Safe Tech Environment at Home”
  • “Why Math Looks Different Now”
  • “Get to Know Google Apps in Education”

Sessions will be led by district curriculum and technology staff and last 30 minutes. They will be held at 6 p.m. 6:40 p.m. and 7:20 p.m. Parents may also sign up for a 20-minute pre-session called “What is STEM” which begins at 5:30 p.m.
