The Digital Promise League of Innovative Schools 2016 Fall Meeting, which takes place Nov. 2-4, 2016 in Baltimore, is co-hosted by Baltimore County Public Schools and brings district superintendents and their leadership teams together to collaborate on innovative education initiatives. The conference takes place at The Grand in Baltimore, with the Day of Innovation events taking place from 3:30 PM – 6:00 PM on November 3rd at City Garage.
Workbench, project based learning at its best, creates online communities to connect educators, students and ed-tech companies. The Day of Innovation is part of its ongoing efforts to promote STEM education and project based learning.
“The Workbench Day of Innovation for the League’s district leaders gives us a chance to provide them with first-hand experience using drones, programmable robots, 3D printers and other cutting-edge technology as part of a rigorous course of instruction that allows students to learn in new and unique ways,” said Chris Sleat, Workbench CEO. “By collaborating on events like the Workbench Day of Innovation, the League of Innovative Schools is fostering the ongoing transformation of school culture.”
Workbench’s mission is to partner with ed-tech hardware companies to create online learning communities called workbenches. These workbenches foster an engaged community where users can interact with the company and with one another to share programs, lessons and experiences in order to drive interactive, hands-on learning in the classroom. In addition, the fully integrated and custom learning management system within Workbench allows teachers to assign lessons and monitor student progress.
Workbench has partnered with some of the preeminent names in the education technology field including Sphero and SparkFun Electronics. For more information, visit www.workbenchplatform.com.
