Speed Geeking! Networking & Professional Development Event @ NETA

Thu, 03/01/2018 - 13:53

Please join the Nebraska Writing Project at NETA!

Thursday, April 19, from 5:00-5:45 Room 208 of CenturyLink Center

We are hosting a fun networking and professional development event following NETA Day 1 entitled “Speed Geeking!”
Connect with fellow educators who are passionate about using writing and technology together. Anyone can
get up and “geek out” about the ways they use technology with their students. Think speed dating, but with
cool tech projects!

Each participant gets 5 minutes or less to present their tech idea. We’ll provide the projector, connections, and
speakers. The more, the merrier at this high-energy event! If you’re interested, come on by room 208 of
CenturyLink after the final session of NETA Day 1! The event will be hosted by NeWP board members Jennifer
Troester of O’Neill High School and Melissa Legate of Pierce High School.

NeWP Spring and Summer Writing Marathons

Mon, 07/31/2017 - 13:44

Writing Marathons have always held a special place within the NeWP community.

The Nebraska Writing Project has been sponsoring writing marathons since 2006, embracing their ability to bring teachers back to their NeWP roots and to promote place-conscious thinking and writing. Seasonal writing marathons are held each year. This year the spring marathon was held in partnership with the Omaha Warrior Writers.

NeWP TCs and members of the Omaha Warrior Writers met at Sorenson Library in early June to launch the 2017 Spring Writing Marathon. Writing groups set out across the Dundee neighborhood to capture the day through their pens. Popular writing spots included eCreamery, Memorial Park, the Dundee community garden, and local coffee shops. Please enjoy some of our writing from the day.
