SIG INC Pre-Conference Workshop with Heather Gauck

Teachers in classroom

Please join SIG INC in welcoming Heather Gauck to our pre-conference session stage! Heather is an educator in the Grand Rapids Public Schools and we are very lucky to have her this year.

Heather is a 20 year teacher and school leader with passion for how technology can help differentiate and personalize teaching. Heather has received some very prestigious awards such as the Michigan Educator Voice Fellowship 2014-15, and a participant in the “Teach to Lead” initiative begun by U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan. Gauck was recognized by PBS as one of 2015’s digital innovators.

Heather has spent numerous hours investigating ways to best use technology to reach the top of Blooms Taxonomy. Personalized Learning can be accomplished like never before as students create, synthesize, and explain their understanding. She will also share the road to becoming a connected educator to help with individual professional development along with helping students become global learners.

Heather will be presenting two half-day pre-conference sessions on Wednesday, March 15th. The title of her sessions are: Achieving Engagement, Differentiation and Higher Level Thinking Skills for Elementary Students and Achieving Engagement, Differentiation and Higher Level Thinking Skills for Secondary Students.

Please join us and learn practical ways to differential and personalize instruction for your students!
