Abingdon’s innovative use of technology integration spread throughout the district this summer as teachers from all over the county participated in blended learning professional development opportunities and modeled technology instruction. #DigitalAPS highlighted the way these educational sharing opportunities elevated Summer Laureate’s curriculum. Several Abingdon teachers and students participated in making this APS summer school a huge success this year! Jacqueline Firster, the Summer Laureate Coordinator and Abingdon’s Resource Teacher for Gifted Services, helped the APS enrichment program acquire and integrate instructionally sound, meaningful use of technology throughout the concept-based curriculum. This work was taken directly from the cutting-edge teacher training and integration being done at Abingdon Elementary.
