New Tech Solutions to Classroom Teaching

(La Porte County, IN) - All La Porte County educators are encouraged to attend this year’s virtual Summer Technology Conference scheduled for June 3.


Officials said the purpose is to gain practical, “use it in the classroom tomorrow” technology solutions to classroom needs. 


The conference is led by the La Porte County Public Library and Unity Foundation of La Porte County.


“Unity is proud to be a part of the community lifting up teachers and showing appreciation for their tireless work,” said Maggi Spartz, President of Unity Foundation of La Porte County.


This year’s conference again features Matt Miller, author of Ditch that Textbook, and Tech Like a Pirate. Miller will present things like new content applicable to teachers of all grade levels and subjects.


Officials said Miller’s passion is to equip educators to thrive in this new era of education and think differently about the craft of teaching. In 2021, officials said that over 200 educators participated virtually in this free professional development event.


Miller spent more than a decade in the classroom, creating unique learning experiences for students through technology and creative teaching.
