FIRE Educational Summit Draws Big Turnout

Over 14,000 people participated in the Forging Innovation in Rural Education summit hosted by the 22 school districts of the Kentucky Valley Educational Cooperative in Pikeville on April 11, 2018. 1,300 attended the multi-district K-12 educational professional learning event while approximately 13,000 viewers, from 12 countries and 42 states, tuned in to the live stream and engaged with presenter content on The Holler. Teachers shared the innovations used in their classrooms for their students using the “innovative grants” awarded through the Appalachian Renaissance Initiative. Demonstrations included drone design and build, robotics, aviation, tele-medicine, advanced manufacturing, student publishing, and much more.
