This Arts, Culture, and Technology Institute is designed to support teachers in maintaining
culturally responsive instruction through arts and innovative technology.

The focus of this Institute will be Alaska Culture and their arts, blended with technology, designed to enhance the technological skills for a range of teachers from elementary through high school, and from tech novice to tech confident. The team is presently in the planning process and more information will be forthcoming.

“In an ever-changing technological landscape, where today’s platforms are not
tomorrow’s platforms, the key seems to be that any one of these spaces can use
a dose of humanity and art and culture ~ Ze Frank”s

Housing will be provided for out-of-town participants at the LKSD dorms.  LKSD teachers will be given priority but there should be room for others from other districts.  Please contact Barbara Short if interested in housing for the Bethel Insititute and you will be placed on a list.

The day will run from 8:30-4:30 so that we have time for field trips and outside excursions.
