Technology Day 2014
The Third Annual Technology Day: A Modern Story, took place one August 18, 2014. Over the past two years 269 faculty and staff at Saint Xavier University have shared their experiences with technology and explored the areas of pedagogical innovation, iPads in the classroom, the utilization of ePortfolios and much more. In 2014, we invited like-minded faculty, staff and administrators who were interested in education innovation from the area universities, community colleges and K-12 school districts.
In 2014, we were pleased to have an international leader in educational technology serve as our Opening Keynote Speaker, Alan November, Senior Partner and Founder of November Learning. November was named one of the nation's fifteen most influential thinkers of the decade by Technology and Learning Magazine.
The Closing Keynote Speaker was Dr. Theresa Dunkin, Superintendent, Aptakisic-Tripp CCSD 102. Dr. Dunkin is a thought leader in her own right. In 2013 she was awarded the "Tech Savvy Superintendent of the Year" by eSchool News and recognized at the 2013 American Association of School Administrators National Conference in Los Angeles this winter.
