SDJ and Parker High School Awarded Elsie Brumback Scholarship

The School District Janesville and Parker High School have been awarded the Elsie Brumback Scholarship, for two faculty and three students for an all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C. to present at the national SETDA (School Educational Technology Director’s Association) conference on Monday, October 15, 2012 at the Student Voices Luncheon.
The School District of Janesville was chosen from among hundreds of entries across the United States.  The faculty and students will be presenting at the Leadership Summit on their use of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and assistive technology.  Their demonstration will show how teaching and learning have been transformed to better meet the needs of each student through the power of technology.
This opportunity gives our staff and students a chance to share with other state and national education leaders the positive impact technology has on teaching and learning. The SETDA conference is expected to have representatives from more than 40 states, event sponsors, and leaders from the Council of Chief State School Officers, National Association of State Boards of Education, and the US Department of Education.
The event agenda is: http://www.setda.org/web/guest/2012leadershipsummit,
