Area educators have a unique opportunity to learn how to maximize free technology resources to supplement their classrooms at MNU’s Technology Conference for educators June 11 and 12, 2013. Consultant and 35-year veteran educator John Kuglin will present iEducator Teaching Today at the two-day event. Kuglin’s goal is to help professionals understand and navigate the road to successful teaching today.

Kuglin says in today’s educational environment of shrinking budgets “Cloud or web-based assets are ‘game changers’ and are available to all educators regardless of position, location or district, many times for no cost!  It is important for all educators to learn how to maximize their potential for using cloud resources in their districts and/or teaching practices.”

Participants will also learn strategies to help them use technology for instruction and assessment.

This is Kuglin's second time to present at MNU. According to Dr. Kim Humerickhouse, MNU professor of teacher education, the nationally renowned speaker is "back by popular demand.”

“He will focus on characteristics of 21st Century teaching and learning including instruction and assessment, digital tools and resources for higher-order thinking, and learning through authentic assessment,” Humerickhouse said. “His participants will come away with specific strategies to use in their classrooms.”

Kuglin is known as a technology pioneer and a visionary leader in K-16 education. He has been featured on CNN for his innovative use of technology in the classroom, has testified before the U.S. Senate on classroom technologies, and served as a consultant and on-air host for a 10-part technology series on the Learning Channel. Kuglin was identified as one of the Top 25 Education Technology Advocates in the United States by District Administrator magazine, as well as awarded the Power Teacher designation - one of only ten such designations in the country - by USA Today.  He is a nationally acclaimed keynote speaker addressing the nation’s largest technology conferences.


MNU is able to offer the Technology Conference at a reasonable cost of $50 per participant through their five-year $6.6 million Preparing Educators for Rural Kansas (PERK) grant. The focus of the PERK grant is to provide professional development opportunities to K-12 teachers. MNU has partnered with rural school districts in southwestern Kansas to provide such opportunities since 2009.

The Technology Conference is part of a summer series of professional development conferences at MNU called Just for You at MNU. Also offered in June are conferences on literacy and math. For more information about these opportunities visit: www.mnu.edu/continuing-education.
