Name: Wiring the Classroom: Empowering Students Through Technology
Date: April 25, 2017
Time: 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM CDT
Event Description:
Technology is transforming education in Maury County. Join us for a community-wide panel forum as state and local leaders discuss ways schools are using technology to enhance students’ education experience. Parents, students and community members are invited to attend, and students in attendance will be entered into a drawing to win a technological device. The event will take place Tuesday, April 25 at Columbia State Community College. 

MCPS has been on the leading edge of the shift from textbooks to technology. The district announced a new project-based learning model last fall, and its DIPLOMA program aims to place a device in the hands of every student and teacher in its schools. The district also plans to announce a digital business partnership this spring in coordination with the Maury Alliance. 

Wiring the Classroom is the latest installment in a series of community education events sponsored by the Maury Alliance. Last year, hundreds of community members attended Unlocking the Keys to Student Success, a forum that outlined way students could capitalize on Tennessee’s scholarship programs, and Connecting the Dots, which discussed ways to link Maury’s economic development efforts with its education efforts.
