Blackfoot Sponsors 22nd Annual August Institute

Support helps provide virtual August Institute conference for free for local teachers.

Blackfoot Communications was proud to be the title sponsor of the 22nd Annual August Institute for educators that was held virtually this week. The educator conference focuses on technology integration into core content areas.

The August Institute is hosted by the Western Montana Professional Learning Collaborative. They were excited that Blackfoot stepped up to offer this year’s virtual August Institute conference for free to the first 250 registrants.

“Blackfoot recognizes the extraordinary and industrious efforts our teachers and administrators have made towards pivoting to online learning during the challenges of the ongoing COVID pandemic. Blackfoot has worked to ensure broadband internet access is available for many local schools and communities. Blackfoot is lending their support towards open access to our conference focused on digital learning that enhances teacher and student experiences.”
