Overview:

Maine-Endwell Central School District, in collaboration with Broome-Tioga BOCES, will be hosting educators for a two day conference, entitled "Mindfully Digital," to showcase the district's journey in technology integration.

Maine-Endwell has been a frontrunner in educational technology, and has not only provided students devices, but has allocated resources, such as embedded training and support through Broome-Tioga BOCES and the South Central Regional Information Center, to ensure mindful use in student instruction. Maine-Endwell recognizes that to be prepared for college and careers, schools need to equip our students with future ready skills. This is why the district is committed to being Mindfully Digital and would like to share our experience with other districts who are embarking on this journey or looking to drive their journey to the next step.

Day 1: You will participate in guided visits throughout our four schools where you'll be introduced to teachers who will welcome you into their classrooms to get a first-hand view of what our program looks like "in real time."

Day 2: You will join Maine-Endwell staff in attending a series of sessions presented by M-E CSD teachers, administrators, and regional partners, that will address a wide range of topics centered around the ongoing, and ever evolving, experience with technology integration.
