A modernized walking cane for the blind that verbally lets its user know when items are in their path, edible water bottles that are environmentally friendly, an app that provides information on why a flag at a DCSD school may be at half-staff on a particular day. These are just a fraction of projects Douglas County School District (DCSD) students presented at the first Student Innovation Expo on Monday, June 6.
DOUGLAS COUNTY, CO—More than 500 educ
The Create Something Great 2016 Think Tank is scheduled for the week of June 6th through June 9th at Mountain Vista High School and Mountain Ridge Middle School. Created by teachers for teachers, the Think Tank allows DCSD teachers to share ideas, collaborate and network with colleagues from across the country.
More than 500 of Douglas County School District’s most innovative teachers and administrators gathered this summer, along with colleagues from around the state and country, to collaborate as they reimagine and transform instruction in their classroom and schools.
Create Something Great (CSG) began last year with a simple idea from a group of teachers. They wanted to create a network of peers within the Douglas County School District (DCSD) to share innovative practices. This summer, the Think Tank they created will support more than 500 Douglas County teachers during a four-day event.
