Hendricks County, IN- Mill Creek Community Schools is proudly growing community citizens for the future. As a corporation they thrive on leading students to become lifelong learners and choose to model that as their teachers lead the way in training and learning to better instruction in the classroom. The bridges that span our goals and dreams are built by teamwork. As their corporation moved to a complete 1:1 district, they have high expectations for all of those involved. Their teachers are always learning to lead differently and technology integration is ever-increasing. Teachers strive to stay ahead of the student learning curve, and since many toddlers can now manipulate a cell phone or device this can prove to be a challenge.
In an effort to keep on the leading edge of technology and facilitating learning in the classroom, Mill Creek Community Schools partnered their grant dollars from HCCF to assist in hosting J Matt Miller a world-wide renowned teacher leader of classroom technology integration. The Mill Creek Community Schools campus truly benefited experience and learned a great deal from him. Many of his integration ideas were quickly applicable to each and every classroom.
Stacey Monet, Mill Creek Community Schools Assistant Superintendent spoke to the benefit of this grant, “This experience has been great one for the teachers of MCCSC, and as we roll into the world of eLearning and developing digital curricula K-12, we will be able to apply our learning from J Matt Miller’s presentation. We are very grateful for the assistance in funding from HCCF to help us bring a great presenter and an even greater impact on teacher and student learning!”
