Looking for an excellent conference to attend this fall? Illinois Educators Technology Conference may just be the one for you. Not too big, but definitely not to small… Additionally, yours truly will be presenting three different sessions there:
- Learn the Power of Digital Notebooks
- Thurs., Nov. 19 Plaza B 11-11:50am
- The Benefits of Zoho Office Suite – From a Users Perspective
- Thurs., Nov. 19 Plaza B 2:25-3:15pm
- Kids Utilize Technology… Teachers Internalize Technology…
- Fri., Nov. 20 Capital V 9:30-10:20am
I plan on attempting to stream my sessions (or at least podcast them) as bandwidth is sometimes an issue and I want to be sure not to drive another presenter (or myself) off the network.
Hope to see some of you there! Here is information to register for the conference. If you are attending, please look me up. I will be arriving on Wednesday night and taking up residence somewhere near the fireplace ;0) -Scott
