Conference Presentation - #FETC



I'm excited to be presenting at the Future of Education Tech Conference (FETC) this week. I always thought it was the Florida Education Tech Conference...which makes more sense since it is being held in Orlando, FL but apparently I found out this week that I was wrong!

My proposal was accepted for a poster session on the opening day of the conference - Wednesday. So I was able to go (it is easier to "sell" going to a conference to supervisors when you are one of the presenters...so I put in a lot of proposals during the year :). Poster sessions are really hard...you see a lot of people but you can't really explain anything in depth. Another team from our tech department was selected as well and our awesome supervisor helped us make poster for our poster session (see picture above). 

Mine is a repeat of a session I presented in Greenville, SC in 2014 (SCEdTech Conference). It is called "Say Cheese! - 10 Easy Projects that Use a Digital Camera". It is a fun presentation for teachers and tech coaches looking for project ideas for the classroom that don't require a lot of high tech skills. 

Once the conference is over I will post a link to my entire presentation and any cool things I learned. If you are going, stop by and say hi...my session is Wednesday 5:30 - 6:30 p.m. (I am competing against the opening of the vendor hall so that is a bit rough and I will need the bodies (ha!).
