TCEA 2014 is going great!


In case you don't know much about TCEA, it stands for Texas Computer Education Association. The TCEA conference is held in Austin every February. This year is my fourth opportunity to attend. Besides being a participant, taking in lots of great sessions, I am teaching two sessions, giving back to others.


Below are some things that teachers, technologists, and administrators can experience at the TCEA conference:
  • learn about emerging technologies and how it is impacting K-12 education
  • attend classes to learn how others are using instructional technology in the classroom
  • network with other teachers, technologists, tech coordinators, and tech directors
  • visit with hundreds of vendors at the massive Exhibit Hall
If you ever get a chance to attend a TCEA conference in future, consider going!  To learn more about TCEA and some of the member benefits, visit their website: www.tcea.org
