I know that it is only February, but there is already SO many things to start marking on your calendar! I just finished with TCEA where one of our own DEN members was selected TCEA Teacher of the Year! Will be doing a blog on that soon! So, here are a few of the conferences that I am super excited about! Check out all of the links below.
DENapalooza-The DEN will be touring North America, stopping in ten locations to learn with each other and share the power of making connections through the Discovery Educator Network. The first stop is in McKinny, Texas on March 23!
Podstock- This happens in Wichita, Kansas. It is the brainchild of Kevin Honeycutt and all of the great ESSDACK folk. It is July 17, 18, and 19. This is a conference that I make sure I get to EVERY year because I learn so much and just have a chance to go “home” again!
iPadpalooza- This will be my first year to attend this conference, but I am super excited! It will take place June 18-19 in Austin, Texas. I have had a chance to see @Mrhooker present.. and his whole team at Eane’s is pretty rocking! This looks like it is going to be an AWESOME event!
Google Apps for Education Texas Summit- I had a chance to attend a Google Summit this past year and it was a great day of awesome learning. I am excited about this one on May 18th in the Woodlands. If you haven’t checked out @Friedtechnology and @edtechchic this would be a great time to do that! Sign up HERE
Of course there is also some great EdCamps coming up in the Texas area. Want to find out more about EdCamps? Check out this site.
I know that I am going to be able to make #EdCampWaller. The Tech Ninjas (@TechNinjaTodd and @TechNinjaStacey) are helping get that one together. It will be happening on April 27th
I love #EdCamps because they are free and I always get a ton of great resources from them!
Are there any conferences that are on your travel agenda this summer? If you aren’t able to make one of the conferences you can follow along with everyones learning on twitter! Just check out the hashtags. Happy learning!
