First Annual TechSmart Shared Learning Event

An attendee describes technology-related classroom management challenges to the group.

On May 8, 2018,  principals and technology coaches from 5 school districts gathered together for the first TechSmart Initiative Shared Learning Event, co-hosted by the Mt Hood Cable Regulatory Commission (MHCRC) and Pacific Research and Evaluation (PRE).  The event celebrated the work of Multnomah County School Districts, recipients of TechSmart Initiative Grant funding, and invited attendees to gather and collaborate on learnings from each district’s TechSmart Grant project. Discussions focused on classroom management techniques, digital citizenship, teacher and student engagement strategies, and group and individual training techniques.

The MHCRC TechSmart Initiative for Student Success was originally launched in 2014 with the goal of investing $19 million in technology grants and evaluation resources for Multnomah County School Districts to identify effective classroom instruction that uses technology to foster improvement in academic outcomes for all students and to share the successful strategies across districts.
