Explorer Program

Where do great ideas come from? LOGIC Explorers are those teachers who are always on the lookout for new ways to implement technology enhanced learning activities. They are interested in travelling to other classrooms, schools, and even other districts in search of ideas which will move their practice forward. More importantly, Explorers bring back what they have found and help their communities grow as well. Apply to be a LOGIC Explorer and share with us what you find!

Explorer Responsibilities

As a LOGIC Explorers participants will:

  • Visit other classrooms looking for new ideas.
  • Research best practices in a chosen field of study.
  • Collect ideas from many different sources around a singular topic.
  • Replicate these ideas in your own classroom
  • Share resources and ideas in online communities and through staff-lead PD events.
