On Saturday, the opening keynote speaker Dr. Prince Hycy Bull (associate professor at NCCU’s School of Education) and graduate students in the Educational Technology program at NCCU School of Education will lead a presentation titled, “Double Flipping the Classroom.” Saturday’s closing keynote speaker is Mr. Neill Kimrey, Instructional Technology Director at the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction.
