Poway Unified's new Education & Technology Department, under the direction of Associate Superintendent Jennifer Burks, worked with business partner Troxell to bring a new kind of professional development event to PUSD: the Google Roadshow on Wednesday, September 13, 2017. At various sessions, attendees learned how to increase student engagement through digital portfolios and passion projects, and how to incorporate technology-rich learning environments. At the STEM playground, they were able to experience the latest educational technology and tools, including virtual reality, 3D printers, Raspberry Pi laptops, and artificial intelligence.
#TeamPUSD took to social media to share their experiences at the event, using the hashtags #PUSDGoogleRoadShow and #PUSDInnovate. Here's a sampling of posts:
The science-themed dessert table was a crowd favorite, with rice krispie molecules, periodic table cookies, lego cupcakes and brownies, and liquid candy in test tubes.
