There were many key players involved, but I must give a personal shoutout to Kelly Miksch (Instructional Technology Specialist) and James Hoyer (Assistant Director of Instructional Technology) for spearheading this incredible endeavor. SMART Technologies was so impressed with our district’s efforts that they sent a film crew out to create the video embedded below.

Every instructional classroom has transformed with increased engagement where students create learning, connect with one another and their teacher and produce meaningful outcomes.
