Willingness to Take a Risk
If you were fortunate enough to attend the recent Create Something Great meet-up held at the Innovation Pavilion on September 16, then you were part of an elite group of educators privileged to hear Adrian Bazemore from the Procter and Gamble eCommerce Division speak about connecting industry with education.
Mr. Bazemore started out by thanking educators for their willingness to take risks to create something great by creating future leaders. He stressed the importance of using technology in education, and that educators need to push their students to go that extra mile with technology because technology will set them apart.
Mr. Bazemore advised educators to avoid using technology as a babysitter. He urged educators to recognize technology as a platform to challenge students to aim higher. “We have to be the ones to push back the challenge. Push your students, they can do it!”
Educators attended breakout Learning Sessions that included Google Classrooms, Shifting Learning Environments, Capturing the Learning Using Video, Tech Devices, and Shifting Instructional Practices.
