Jennifer Magiera

Bio: Jennie Magiera is the chief innovation officer at Des Plaines Public Schools in Chicago and the author of Courageous Edventures. Previously the digital learning coordinator for the Academy for Urban School Leadership and a teacher in Chicago Public Schools, Magiera leverages her experiences in the classroom to inform her passion – supporting educators to create new and better opportunities for their students. She believes that despite the many challenges facing schools today, every classroom can be a place for what she calls “edventures:” student-centered, passion-based experiential learning. With this mantra in mind, Magiera’s work centers on acknowledging problems and finding innovative ways to navigate them, freeing up teachers and students to dive into classroom edventures. Magiera is also devoted to reimagining professional development to ensure teachers receive relevant training and support. She has served on the Technical Working Group for the U.S. Department of Education’s National Educational Technology Plan and co-founded various new conference concepts, including PLAYDATE, a collaborative online space where educators tinker with edtech tools, programs and apps. She has been recognized for her work with honors including White House Champion for Change, Chicago Public Schools Innovator of the Year, Golden Apple Teacher of Distinction, Apple Distinguished Educator and Google for Education Certified Innovator, and she has been featured on NBC’s “Education Nation,” C-SPAN’s “Reimagining Education” and NPR. Magiera shares her experiences with taking risks in the classroom and provides hints to help others feel comfortable doing the same in her book, Courageous Edventures. She holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology and history from Columbia University and a master’s degree in mathematics education from the University of Illinois-Chicago.
