Let's Go Wisconsin

We're headed to LaCrosse Wisconsin to participate in the 2017 Let's Go Wisconsin Summer Symposium!

The 2015 and 2016 Summer Symposiums brought together over 150 education technology leaders, teachers, and IT from three states, focusing on understanding the “WHY” of a one-to-one educational environment and how to best align technology leadership groups. The 2017 Symposium is all about exploring the different ways we transform our learning environments.

LETSGO-WI, unlike any other professional learning opportunity, focuses on Wisconsin schools that have implemented an Apple one-to-one teaching and learning environment. LETSGO-WI strives to provide job specific and district level collaboration to four separate groups of leaders (Administration, Principal, Teacher/Instruction, Technology).

When: July 25th, 2017 – July 26th, 2017
Where: School District of La Crosse
Central High School
1801 Losey Blvd. S, La Crosse, WI
