I’m in Erie, Pennsylvania, for the 3CsETC. I’m excited to have the opportunity to meet so many from my PLN.
What is 3CsETC?
The 3Cs ETC Conference is a collaborative effort between NPAECT, IU5, CFF Coaches and the LEARN Initiative. The conference name was created using 3Cs (Connect, Communicate, Collaborate), which NPAECT has used as their day-conference theme in the spring and fall of 2008 combined with ETC (Educational Technology Conference) which was added to 3Cs as the conference joined forces with CFF and LEARN.
NPAECT, LEARN and CFF and IU5 separately were working toward the same goal of assisting teachers in changing their teaching practices using technology as an integral part of their curriculum, so this collaboration made perfect sense.
One goal of 3Cs ETC is to provide quality professional development and training and to host engaging and motivating keynote speakers, conference presenters, and hands-on learning opportunities to educators in the northwest Pennsylvania region. Our second goal is to develop a vibrant professional learning community of 21st century teachers who recognize the rapid changes in our world that demand changes in our classroom instruction and who are willing to invest in a vastly different educational system that still focuses on challenging our students to succeed.
