It’s no question that technology has changed the world over the last few decades, from how we shop to how we share our lives. In the U.S., many public school districts are in the process of making major changes thanks to technology. Leaders in education and technology are hoping schools get it right because a lot is at stake.
The Three Rivers Educational Technology Conference was such an overwhelming success in 2012 we had to find a larger space. We’re moving down the road to the Four Points Sheraton. Put November 19 and 20 on your calendar. This year’s theme will be Using Technology to Remake Learning. The conference will include a half-day pre-conference on November 19 and a full day event on November 20.
Richard Culatta, the current Director for the Office of Educational Technology for the Department of Education, will be the keynote speaker on November 20. Andrew Slack, the creator and executive director for the Harry Potter Alliance, will be the keynote speaker for the pre-conference on November 19.
This year’s conference will include strands that highlight:
- Digital Media
- Game-based Learning
- New Directions in Educational Technology
- Mobile Devices for 1:1 Learning
- Emerging Issues such as “Teacher Evaluation,” “Flipped Learning,” and “Digital Literacy.”
