We’re constantly talking and thinking about this thing called “ed tech.” And usually, it’s in the context of how can I make technology tools a part of education? But the reality is that technology is a part of everyday education. So the real question is: how do we unite as classroom teachers, technology leaders, and district/campus leaders to make technology a seamless part of what we’re already doing well?
There are many options for training and gathering resources that support great teaching and leadership with technology. At TCEA, our goal is to make your learning experience fun and customized for you. Our annual TCEA Convention & Exposition is where it starts. We bring together the teacher and the superintendent, the novice and the pro, the early adopter and the technophobe, for a flexible week to fit everyone’s needs. If you’re ready to transform from worrying about “ed tech” to just focusing on great teaching and learning strategies, here’s a preview of some of the fantastic presentations happening this year to help support you.
