The Illinois Educators Technology Conference (IETC) is coming soon. I look forward to meeting some of you there. I will be giving three presentations this year that I hope you will find interesting and attend:
You can find out more information about each of these presentations by clicking on the IETC 2008 Presentations page above, or on the titles above themselves. I will be adding the actual presentation decks and any handouts / resources to those pages over the next month. If you have anything you would be interested in me addressing during these sessions or questions, just drop me a comment.
Below is the conference early-bird announcement. If you are interested in attending the IETC, or will already be there, look below for some great savings on the conference registration and hotel information.
See you at IETC 2008!
