This Arts, Culture, and Technology Institute is a new endeavor from AAEC. When Sitka expressed an interest in partnering on this event it was a
perfect match. SSD has an ACT Curriculum -designed to support teachers in maintaining culturally responsive instruction through arts and innovative technology.

The focus of this Institute will be SE Alaska Culture and their Arts, as well as technology. The team is presently in the process of planning this inaugural event; it will be designed to enhance the technology skills of a range of teachers from elementary through high school, and from tech novice to tech confident.

Three 500 level Credits Available

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

Sitka and other districts have scholarships available to cover registration costs and sometimes more.  Please check with the appropriate person at your district.
