Can anyone recommend or share some highly recommended Educational Technology Conferences to attend?
Sloan C (international, emerging tech, and hybrid), NMC, DTL (distance teaching and learning), Educause, Educause regional, ELI, POD, GLS, QM, WCET, (note: these are mostly higher ed, and sorry for all the acronyms; they should all be pretty googleable though)
CUE (Computer Using Educators) in Palm Springs in March (I've been several times, and it is the best one I have been to, that's why I keep going back.)
FETC (Florida Eucational Tech Conf.) Pretty good. Usually in February in Orlando.
ISTE - (Int'l Society for Tech in Ed) - Changes location, usually in June. Never been to ISTE, but know lot's of people who have. Some like, some think it is too big to actually be of good use.
We'll be attending iNACOL in Orlando next month and The Washing Library Media Association conference. I'll send you more details about all the conferences we'll be attending this year tomorrow via email. For everyone - we post our conferences on FaceBook and our social sites as well.
I'm not sure exactly where you are located but want to introduce you to EdCamps. They are located and being hosted in many different locations. There are two great things about this type of conference/camp. This is free professional development that is explained best in this video:
Thanks for this info. Rebecca. I've posted it on our social sites as well.
