ABC Create is hosting the 2020 ABC CREATE Teachers’ Summer STEAM Virtual Retreat – a summer PD like nothing we’ve ever seen!  Designed by ABC CREATE teachers and CREATE Lab Satellite Network partners, this opportunity to reflect, recharge, and refine will help you to segue from a rather traumatic school year through a summer still filled with questions and uncertainties.
This ABC CREATE summer experience will focus on supporting teachers through the challenges and opportunities presented by the pandemic with online/distance learning. The focal points for discussion, dissemination of resources, and areas of exploration will all be focusing on helping you to be better prepared for integrating online learning and/or STEAM education into your teaching repertoire. The virtual retreat is open to all teachers – ABC CREATE districts and others, any grade level – any subject area. This is designed for educators who want to reflect upon, share, and reimagine their recent online teaching experience.

8:00 AM – 12:00 PMMonday, June 29 and Wednesday, July 1, 2020
