OS Connects Project

The theme of the 2020 MACUL conference is “Inspiring Innovative Practices”. This project will support 56 technology-ready new teachers by providing each Oakland County school district with funds to cover a portion of the cost for two teachers to attend the conference. Oakland Schools technology integration staff will accompany the teachers and supplement their conference experience with networking and engagement activities that encourage them to share ideas for technology implementation. The project also includes plans for post-conference communication and collaboration as well as mini-grants for innovative projects proposed by teachers after their conference experience. The results of the innovative projects will be shared with other educators at the 2021 MACUL Conference and be made available on the Oakland Schools Ed Tech Fellows digital platform.
