What do Texas, California, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Illinois, Iowa, and Ontario have in common? We had workshops or presentations in all of them this week! Shawn McCusker and Greg Kulowiec continued our Summer Workshop Series in Chicago with The iPad Classroom. Then Tom Daccord led Teaching History with Technology at the end of the week, and Samantha Morra led The Flipped Classroom & Innovative Instruction. Next week we have 4 workshops in Chicago and 4 workshops in Cambridge. Space is limited, but still available, so find the right workshop for you this summer at edtechteacher.org/summer.
