Untitled-2Lackawanna Trail High School teacher, Miss Claire Signorello was among 100 educators from across Pennsylvania to be selected to participate in the Keystone Technology Innovators (KTI) Summit, held July 21-25, on the campus of Kutztown University.

At the summit, these innovative educators came together to collaborate and learn from one another as well as a team of volunteer staff members, who were previous Summit attendees themselves. The KTI Summit was planned around five pillars: Innovate, Develop, Connect, Lead and Advocate. Each day, attendees were greeted by the keynote speaker who spoke of the pillars and energized the attendees for the day ahead. Attendees then selected from an array of concurrent sessions to enrich their knowledge and skill base of best teaching practices: cultivate technological expertise, creativity and innovation; advocate for educational technology in the classroom; share lessons, strategies and practices with other state educators; and connect with their Keystones. At the end of the week, these teachers returned to their home district to continue their work in advocating and influencing others when it comes to teaching and learning with technology. Sponsored by the
non-profit professional organization PAECT with the support of Eduspire, the KTI summit was entirely teacher planned and executed.  

Signorello recently received a grant for a chromakey green screen kit 800w photo video and a swivel Robotic Platform Video for use in her classroom. She was awarded the grant from DonorsChoose.org  for her classroom project called “Making Statistics Come Alive”.
