Summer Seminar Sessions

Summer Seminar participants will be able to choose their own educational adventure using the Matrix! Participants will optimize their time and choose sessions relevant to the growth of their program. Each participant will build their schedule in advance by selecting from a variety of sessions including hands-on, presentation style, round table, and even interactive activities.


Seminar Sessions



The playground is an opportunity for facilitators to get their hands on some of the technology and software that schools are using in their EAST classrooms, as well as time to visit with potential community partners. The best part is that you can earn professional development hours just by "hanging out" in the Playground! Check out the schedule of exhibitors and make plans to visit them in Fayetteville!
