  • Wednesday Keynote Speaker
    Jenifer Fox

    Educator, Speaker, & Innovator on 21st Century Learning Founding Head of The Delta School, Wilson, Arkansas

    Jenifer Fox is an international award-winning author, public speaker, and a recognized leader of the Strengths Movement. Jenifer created cutting edge strengths curriculum for youth utilizing technology and integrated media. She bases her claims on her lifetime experience working with young people (25 years, with 16 as a school principal) and states that if we are to do one thing that will truly prepare children to face the future with confidence and success it is to develop their strengths. Her message is straightforward. Education as we know it today is heading toward obsolescence. In order for young people to be successful in the future, educators will need to know what energizes their students, what keeps their interests, what their contribution is going to be, and what they have to offer to relationships with others. Developing students strengths will be as important as understanding technology.

Christa McAuliffe was our New Hampshire "teacher in space" astronaut who died in the Challenger shuttle launch on January 28th, 1986.

In Christa's memory and in keeping with her spirit this conference is designed to highlight the sharing of successful technology practices among educators. The conference serves as a forum for exchanging technology-based success stories, integration tips, instructional strategies, technical solutions, and management techniques, that really work in the learning environment.

MITI ~ "Master It & Take It" Workshops

About the MITI Master It & Take It Initiative . . .

New Hampshire educators are amazingly creative at using the teaching resources available to them, and we have always highlighted these creative teaching and learning strategies in our McAuliffe Stars sessions.
