Noelle H. Lowery, Communications Coordinator, KIBSD

The date is set for the 2017 DTi Network Conference: June 5-7.

Presented by the Digital Teaching Initiative Network — a partnership between KIBSD, Kenai Peninsula Borough School District and Copper River School District — the theme for this summer’s three-day conference is “Inspiration, Innovation, Personalization.”

The conference will be hosted by the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District in Soldotna, and the list of presenters includes state and national leaders in their respective fields.

The strand-style conference will provide administrators, educators and instructional teams with a unique opportunity to spend multiple days with a single presenter on a single strand topic, and will result in learning skills and pedagogy that can be taken back and applied in school districts and classrooms with confidence.
