First Spark Series Event Recap
On Tuesday, April 25th we hosted our first event in the Spark Series: Fostering Innovation and Equity in our Schools with George Couros as our keynote speaker. We completely sold out for this event, showing the interest of educators in the region. You can follow the conversations we had on Twitter by searching #SparkSD.
The Spark Series (formerly known as the Spotlight on Education Series) ignites San Diego educators through world-class, cutting-edge, visionary thinking. It is a venue for site administrators, teacher leaders, central office administrators, university students, professors of education and business leaders to hear insights and perspectives from respected thought leaders in education. Our first event will occur on April 25 and feature George Couros, who is a leading educator in the area of innovative leadership, teaching, and learning. He has worked with all levels of school, from K-12 as a teacher and technology facilitator and as a school and district administrator. He is a sought-after speaker on the topic of innovative student learning and engagement and has worked with schools and organizations around the globe. Although George is a leader in the area of innovation, his focus is always the development of leadership and people and what is best for learners. His belief that meaningful change happens when you first connect to people's hearts is modeled in his writing and speaking. For his Spark Series keynote, George will share powerful examples of leading innovation in education and why this is so crucial for all educators. His presentations are known to be emotional and humorous, all while pushing your thinking in a way that will last with you long after this keynote.
