Choose to be a Library and Ed Tech Trooper: A New Beginning


12:15 ­ 1:45 Thursday, May 12, 2015
Our world is not changing back. In the vortex of today’s onslaught of technical innovation, it’s time to take action! As EdTech Troopers, we are challenged to choose to connect, collaborate, create, construct, make, flip, share, advocate and empower to move forward into the universe of rigorous instruction. This session will make sense of the sensational and decode the Babel of buzzwords. Choosing to be an EdTech Trooper and a change agent within education isn’t easy – but it’s very rewarding for teachers and students! Doing the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs, is optional.
