Countdown to FETC: Still time to sign up for workshops!

13 Jan

The Florida Educational Technology Conference (FETC), Florida’s premiere educational event, kicks off in just ten days!

If you haven’t registered, now is the time. With over a 100 workshops and 200 concurrent sessions, there is something for every educator. Plus, you’ll want to make sure you check out the new technology available from hundreds of exhibitors ready to teach new tricks to easily infuse cutting-edge technology into your classroom.

And… it’s not too late to add a hands-on workshop to really enhance your FETC experience. Hands-on workshops let you try out new technologies and gain feedback from experts simultaneously. It is the ultimate interactive conference experience.

Here is some information about the three Workshops I am offering at FETC. To see the full list of all FETC Workshops, visit the FETC 2012 website.

I look forward to seeing you there!

WW2300 – Transforming Technology Integration for New 21st Century Learners

Wednesday, January 25: 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM, Hands-On Lab

Our kindergartners have grown up on the Wii and iPhone. These interactive, relational students are not the same 21st Century Learners we had the first decade of the millennium… and our technology curriculum and integration shouldn’t be either! Join us as we explore proven and emerging ways to revolutionize your class and school with a Technology-Infused Curriculum for Student Discovery and Creation!
