Description

The U.S. Department of Education will host the National Rural Education Technology Summit 2.0. U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan will welcome students, educators and rural education stakeholders to this online conference, which was designed to provide examples of how technology is being used to overcome the challenges of distance and increase access to educational opportunities in distant and remote rural areas. No travel is required. You can attend from your computer on your own or with a group of students at your school.

Sessions were designed specifically for students, administrators and teachers, and include interactive presentations and resources. For example, students can login and interact with presenters from the Smithsonian and NASA, and teachers can find out more about research-based professional development resources available online. Administrators may be interested in resources for the implementation of higher college and career-ready standards, and promising practices that can use in the classrooms and schools.

Participants will have access to a “Resource Hall” designed to highlight programs across the federal government that can be used in rural communities. Networking opportunities also will be highlighted throughout this virtual conference.
