Event Updates

Covid-19 Guidelines and Recommendations

At this time, the State of Arizona and CDC Guidelines recommend postponing events larger than 50 people for the next 8 weeks. As our Summer Tour falls outside of this timeframe, we are still planning on holding the three sessions in Tucson, Tempe and Flagstaff and registration is currently still open. We will keep you updated if Summer Tour is postponed, or possibly held on a virtual platform.

Your AAGT Board is monitoring the situation and will follow any further guidelines as they are made available.

Increasing Student Engagement With Choice, Creativity, Complexity, And Curiosity

This interactive session is one part Choose Your Own Adventure and one part professional development, where you are in the driver’s seat! Together we will explore a menu of instructional strategies designed to meaningfully engage your students in the learning process. Your choices and interests will guide us through a series of technology infused creativity activities designed to pique and develop students’ curiosity. Regardless of the choices, everyone will leave with access to all of the resources!
