Lackawanna Trail High School teacher Claire Signorello was among 100 educators from across Pennsylvania to be selected to participate in the Keystone Technology Innovators (KTI) Summit, held July 21-25, at Kutztown University.

Educators came together to collaborate and learn from one another, as well as a team of volunteer staff members who were previous Summit attendees themselves.

The KTI Summit was planned around five “pillars:” Innovate, Develop, Connect, Lead and Advocate. Each day, attendees were greeted by the keynote speaker who spoke on these ideas and energized them for the day ahead. Attendees then selected from an array of concurrent sessions to participate in.

Sponsored by the non-profit professional organization PAECT with the support of Eduspire, the KTI summit was entirely teacher planned and executed.

Signorello recently received a grant for a chromakey green screen kit 800w photo video and a swivel Robotic Platform Video for use in her classroom. She was awarded the grant from for her classroom project called “Making Statistics Come Alive.”
