Colegio Decroly Americano: ISTI recognition  By:Paulina Aycinena High School Principal

Last school year, a group of teachers from Colegio Decroly Americano were enrolled into a cohort to learn about Artificial Intelligence, sponsored by ISTE and General Motors.   Ms. Betzabé Orenos (HS Instructional Coach) and Ms. Sheila Escobedo (HS Assistant Principal) were invited to participate as presenters in the ISTELive21 Conference.  They created a set of Summer Challenges where students were able to choose options during the summer which included exploring  AI. It was a very enriching international experience. They also represented Latin America very well, engaging in activities with other teachers and becoming the 3rd place winning squad for their performance. They were rewarded with $600 for the team. ISTE offers wonderful PD opportunities and the conference is one type of experience to which all educators should have access.
