This year’s Fort Worth ISD Convocation was both virtual and live – and teachers were able to watch from their respective campus. The Monday, August 14, hour-long event kicked off the 2017-18 school year. 

Convocation 2017 was broadcast live via YouTube, AT&T U-Verse, and Charter so teachers could maximize their time preparing for the first day of school on August 21. 

The keynote speaker was Google Education Evangelist Jaime Casap. Jaime evangelizes the power and potential of technology and the web as enabling and supporting tools in pursuit of promoting inquiry-driven project-based learning models. Jaime collaborates with school systems, educational organizations, and leaders focused on building innovation and iteration into our education policies and practices. He speaks on education, technology, innovation, and generation z, at events around the world.

In addition to his role at Google, Jaime serves on a number of boards for organizations focused on education, innovation, and equity.  Jaime is an adjunct professor at Arizona State University, where he teaches classes on policy, innovation, and leadership.  He also teaches a high school communication class at the Phoenix Coding Academy.
