What is an INSPIRE event?

  • Visionary leadership from educators who are fluent in emerging trends and integration
  • A dynamic community of learners working together to pursue best practices with digital tools
  • Modeled use of technology to inspire instructional innovation to improve student learning

INSPIRE events are the best place to receive quality professional development to stimulate effective practice in the infusion of digital tools across the curriculum, for students of all ages. These events are delivered virtually for a worldwide audience.

All sessions are delivered by i2e’s professional learning specialists, educators from around the United States who are experts in their field.

Will there be anything to walk away with?

Yes, every attendee will receive 27 Minecraft lesson plans ready to use across the curriculum and grade spans.

How will I access the live event?

You will be added to a Microsoft Team and a video with written instructions will be sent to you the week prior to the first live event so that you can be sure you have access and understand how to find all the valuable resources throughout the event.

Is this interactive or just a webinar to listen to?
