What teachers are saying...
"I think that this is one of the most well attended and organized events that WSD puts on. It is always informative and interesting. I have learned more about areas that I would have said I had a great deal of knowledge in. I love to learn new things."

The BrainBlast classes are designed to deliver quality technology instruction tailored directly to enhance your instructional practices, in whatever grade or subject you teach.
The BrainBlast conference is a dynamic training. It has changed each year in structure and instruction based upon the technology that we are focusing on for that year. Some years we provide a wide variety of topics with teachers having the ability to choose the topics they would like to train on. Other years we are limiting the amount of topics and having all participants attend training on common technology. Each year as we evaluate the new software and hardware that is being developed and introduced into the classroom we structure the courses and content based upon what is the best fit for Weber School District Students and Teachers. Overall our goal is to provide the best, comprehensive, and condensed technology training that will enhance their curricular goals, that a teacher can get.

Observe available technologies in the Weber School District.
Discuss your technical issues with other teachers.
Explore technology and best practices in your classroom.
Experience a great way to enhance your curriculum with technology.
Determine how technology makes classroom management easier.
