The Education Conference

The Education Conference is designed to address the needs of K-12 teachers and those preparing to be teachers. At the conference you can expect to find grade level breakout sessions of tried and researched practices that you can use the next day in the classroom. Come prepared to be informed, motivated and inspired as we examine how we prepare students to compete in the ever changing world of technology.
