Dream more, learn more, inspire more. These aspirations define leadership. And for the Technology Education Coordinators Special Interest Group (TEC-SIG), these words have power. Register for TEC-SIG’s next meeting on October 26, 2016 to tap into this power. At the request of TCEA members, the October 26, 2016 meeting of TEC-SIG has been strategically placed next to the fall TCEA SysAdmin Conference. These two events take place October 26 through October 28, 2016.
- Stay connected, especially important during Connected Educators’ month.
- Engage in community-based learning efforts that support hyper-connected students and staff.
“How are you using digital signage in your district?” Technologies abound that can shape teaching, learning, and leading. When members ask, “How can I use new edtech in my situation?” they invite you to collaborate with them in world-building. Each effort forces us to re-imagine the possibilities. Whatever your role (technical, policy, instruction), you are invited to dream and learn more.
“Use a cheap Android USB dongle and GoogleCast,” shares one TEC-SIG member. “Or,” counters another, “you can use Xibo, Navori, Visix, or flat panels connected to a video multiplier running Powerpoint!” These meetings inspire attendees to learn from each other. Relationships begin in face-to-face encounters that endure via digital connections TEC-SIG makes available post-meeting.
“We place digital signage in front of schools, in cafeterias, in hallways, gyms, libraries, and offices. Our high school librarian programs the specific messages that appear on each.” When everyone can be your teacher, it’s important to have a few colleagues you can trust and rely on. Being in the presence of so many educational technologists will inspire you to be a leader.
Act now to inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more. Be a TCEA TEC-SIG Connected Education Leader.
