Weekly Resources – New Posts & Webinars from the Team

This week, you may have seen us in one of 6 states or online! It’s been a busy one, and we have plenty to share. Hopefully, many of you are in the sharing mood as the Call for Proposals for the Learning Futures Summit is still open!

In case you missed the Leading Future Learning conference last week, Beth Holland and Kate Wilson LIVE blogged a number of the sessions.

We hope to see more of you online during our Spring Webinars or in person this summer!

Small Tech Changes – BIG Learning Impact

To kick off our Spring Webinar Series, Beth Holland, Samantha Morra, and Brenda Doucette hosted a great conversation this week about the little changes that we can make with technology that may have a huge impact on student learning. They presented some fantastic ideas, and their slides are full of great resources.

We also hope to see you this week for our next Spring Webinar. Tanya Avrith (@edtechschools), Holly Clark (@HollyClarkEdu), Greg Kulowiec (@gregkulowiec), and Samantha Morra (@sammorra) will be presenting “Google is the new resume.” on Tuesday, March 18th, at 7:00pm EST. This is a FREE, live event, so come join us!
