CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Thursday and Friday educators from across Wyoming are meeting virtually for the fifth annual Innovations in Learning Conference.

“...With covid-19 still impacting education across the state, the conversations of this conference have been more important than ever. Because educators need to be able to lean on each other and learn from each other as we all navigate this challenging year,” said Robin Grandpre, Chair of the WY Innovations in Learning Conference Planning Committee.

The conference, hosted through Canvas, has nearly 300 attendees. Kindergarten through college level educators gather to share teaching and learning practices for classrooms.

Educators had the opportunity to share their own novel practices during the Innovations Showcase on Thursday.

Breakout groups consists of how-to demonstrations, case studies, and interactive discussions. Digital tools to help both students and educators are highlighted throughout the various breakout groups.

“Education’s still out there working really hard. Even though we’re still in a pandemic, so please, you know, thank your educators, thank your teachers, as we continue to offer in-person learning to our students,” Grandpre said.

The conference will continue Friday, ending with closing comments at 4 p-m.
