The Conference Formerly Known as Tots and Technology

Remember the BIG name change in 1993? Prince announced he would no longer go by the name Prince, but rather a symbol which was a mash-up of the male and female gender symbols. Logistically, this was a nightmare for the media, so they made up the clumsy title of “The Artist Formerly Known As Prince.” Well, at TCEA we are not being reckless and foolhardy with names, but we are changing our Tots and Technology summer conference to a new name (a very LOUD drum roll, please.)

Elementary Technology Conference

We feel the new name clearly identifies the audience this conference is built for:

Innovative PreK – 5 Educators 

Now that we have established the BIG name change, time for a . . .

Quirky Quick Pop Quiz

  1. What is the number of  instruments Prince could play?
  2. Name the number of seconds Julia Roberts sang Prince’s “Kiss” in the bathtub before being rudely interrupted by Richard Gere in the movie Pretty Woman.
  3. How many years was Prince known only for his symbol?
  4. The TCEA Elementary Technology Conference has been around for how many summers?

Of course, next I could make a bulleted list and talk about the whowhat, where, why, when, and how of the TCEA Elementary Technology Conference, but how boring and not one iota like “The Artist Formerly Known As Prince.” So in celebration of the number eight, Prince, and the ETC, turn on “1999” and let’s shake things up with a Magic 8-Ball.

School will be out and summer will be here before you know it. Rock and roll over to this webpage and get registered for the TCEA Elementary Technology Conference. I know I will be packing my Prince music for the beach!
