CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

Southeast Missouri State University's College of Education is headed to Washington D.C. 

A SEMO contingent will participate in The White House and the U.S. Department of Education Innovators' Summit.

The event takes place December 14. It will highlight the forward-thinking work of innovators advancing principals of educational technology in teacher preparation as well as provide an opportunity for those in attendance to share ideas and success stories.

According to College of Education dean, Dr. Diana Rogers-Adkinson, SEMO is being invited based, partly, on its EDvolution initiative. EDvolution is meant to develop graduates who are technologically competent and model their teaching techniques with the DOE's 2016 National Education Technology Plan.
