2015 Summer of eLearning

One of the reasons Indiana leads the nation in educational technology integration is that our educators and school leaders are blessed with an array of professional learning opportunities. The Indiana Connected Educators (ICE) hosted a great conference last month with 4 strong keynotes and a maker space event. Today, hundreds of vendor representatives fill a beautiful exhibit hall at Union Station for the start of the annual Hoosier Educational Computer Coordinators (HECC) conference. This is the hub for three days of rich conversations around infusing our schools with technology that opens communication, improves efficiency, and prepares our students for their future.

While we gear up for fantastic learning here, we're also excited about 23 new opportunities on the opposite side of the calendar. The Office of eLearning is proud to announce the recipients of the 2015 Summer of eLearning grant - listed below. These districts, along with many partner corporations, have proposed some powerful learning opportunities in June and July that are worth looking forward to!
