VSTE and the Virginia Department of Education are pleased to announce that Rodney Robinson, 2019 National Teacher of the Year, will join us as part of the Leading Ed Forum 2019, being held October 9 and 10, 2019, at Longwood University.
The event is designed to support instruction and technology leaders from CTOs to Superintendents with presentations and conversations related to broadband connectivity, physical security, cybersecurity and student data privacy, digital equity, and 1:1 planning and implementation. Registration is open now.
Robinson will join Dr. Scott McLeod for a workshop on October 10, 2019, to focus the lens of equity on technology and the classroom. Essentially, we will be asking the question: How can we ensure technology is being used equitably across classrooms, schools and divisions to support personalized and culturally responsive instruction? Teams of educators will work with Rodney and Scott to identify their division’s needs and next steps in the area of technology, equity and instruction.
Rodney Robinson is a 19-year teaching veteran. He became a teacher to honor his mother, who struggled to receive an education after being denied an education as a child due to segregation and poverty in rural Virginia. In 2015, Robinson started teaching at Virgie Binford Education Center, a school inside the Richmond Juvenile Detention Center, in an effort to better understand the school-to-prison pipeline.
