Why the Elementary Technology Conference Is So Special

This summer’s most exciting elementary learning event is just around the corner. The 2021 TCEA Elementary Technology Conference is online beginning June 13. We’re bringing fun summertime vibes and plenty of useful, research-backed ideas to help advance teaching and inspire young learners when you get back into the classroom.

Here’s some of the highlights you can expect from this year’s event.

Solutions for You

There are lots of professional learning opportunities out there (including some great ones from TCEA!), but not many are tailored specifically for elementary educators. ETC is all about technologies and teaching practices that are most relevant to elementary educators. We’ll cover topics like social-emotional learning, Google tools, podcasts and video, and more, all with an eye to their effectiveness in PreK–5, rather than across all grades. Getting together and sharing with other elementary educators can be a powerful thing in a world of grab-bag PD.

It’s not just for classroom teachers, either. Everyone involved in elementary education can benefit from this event, whether you are an administrator, librarian, instructional coach, or technologist. Creating connections across specialties can help you amp up your teaching this fall, or help you stay connected with your classroom teachers.

Connecting for Education

Of course, getting so many engaged elementary educators together also means you get the chance to connect, chat, have some fun, and be inspired by your peers. That’s why we have social networking events each day, June 13–15. 

Enjoy interactive networking rooms with dedicated sharing time each day, live morning kickoff events with TCEA speakers, and an evening networking game of Shazingo (think Bingo meets Shazam). You’ll have a chance not only to catch up with old pals and make new friends, but also to spend time sharing ideas, stories, and tips.
