TechTalk Coming January 27! Register Now

In partnership between the Office of Instruction and Information & Technology Services, this year’s TechTalk will be held Friday, January 27 at Roosevelt High School (3436 W Wilson Ave). This is a PD day for both Track E and Track R schools, which we feel is the best way to conveniently include teachers, technology coordinators, librarians and administrators. We are in the process of finalizing other logistics, and will continue to share more information with you as we get closer to the event date.

Register online!

Sign up today! Those who register prior to Friday, January 13 will be entered to win a technology-related prize.

If you would like to showcase how your school is managing or integrating technology, we want to hear from you! We are currently looking for technology leaders to present in 45-minute sessions at TechTalk. Simply, click here and tell us about your proposed presentation. A committee will review the presentation proposals and determine the final selection for TechTalk. Please submit your presentation request by Thursday, December 1.

Ones to Watch! CPS Tech Innovator Awards

At this year’s TechTalk we are excited to introduce our first annual CPS Tech Innovator Award! We discovered a need to showcase the great educators, technology coordinators, and administrators that are advancing technology in this district, and decided to create an award highlighting those individuals. We are now accepting nominations for the CPS Tech Innovator Award. To nominate someone or for more information see: Ones To Watch! All nominations must be submitted by Thursday, December 1

Participants will receive 6 CPDUs for attending TechTalk for the entire day. After Friday, January 13 you will be able to register in CPS University to secure your CPDUs.

This is a great opportunity for teachers, technology coordinators, librarians and principals to bring your teams to TechTalk and receive innovative tips and insightful information on leveraging technology at your school.

We are very excited for TechTalk and hope to see you there!
