Celebrate innovation

Dallas ISD will celebrate and showcase the hard work of teachers and assistant principals who have been reimagining how the next generation of teaching and learning could look like in the district during a special event March 30. The Innovation Showcase is a virtual celebration designed to recognize Dallas ISD’s Innovation in Teaching and School Retool Fellows for the 2020-2021 school year. This event will elevate the voices of our fellows through three panels and a release of a virtual exhibition for attendees to explore their design projects over the year. Those who want to attend must register via Zoom to receive a unique link to join the celebration.

In addition to the recognitions and the exhibit unveiling, the event includes several panels about leveraging innovation in the classroom, how to drive change and navigating ambiguity. Teachers and assistant principals who are interested in being part of future cohorts are encouraged to attend to learn more about the fellowships and how to apply.
