Over the past two days, hundreds of teachers gathered for this year’s MASSCue/M.A.S.S Fall Conference at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, MA. According to the Conference website, this year’s theme was “Dare to Innovate” and provided “educators from across the Commonwealth with exciting and innovative ways to enhance teaching and learning with technology.” At EdTechTeacher, we are proud to have four of our own Instructors, Tom Daccord, Beth Holland, Avra Robinson, and Suzy Brooks present on a wide range of topics.
