Our EdTechTeacher Summits are unique learning experiences that bring together tested and practical edtech strategies for the classroom, as well as thought leaders to explore what is next in education and edtech. From iPads & Chromebooks to Project Based Learning, Gamification, Virtual Reality and Coding, EdTechTeacher Summits are the ideal events to learn, connect and share.
There are three unique strands: edtechNOW, edtechNEXT and edTHOUGHT. Each strand is focused on addressing a certain aspect of education and edtech. Whether you are interested in and focused on learning more about specific edtech tools and strategies or want to explore bigger ideas and approaches to edtech, an EdTechTeacher Summit is the ideal event.
*Product Demonstration: If an exhibitor wants to also present, there is an additional $500 fee and an educator/former educator should be on the presentation team; must be how educators can use their product in the classroom and not a total "sales pitch."
