Four Webinars ~ Four Key Themes

Register Now for Dec 20! Free of Charge to Participants, Co-Sponsored by EdTechTeacher and METAA

This fall EdTechTeacher and the Massachusetts Education Technology Administrators Association (METAA) are partnering to offering a free webinar series entitled Making 1-1 Work for 21st Century Learning. In Massachusetts and across the country, many school districts are increasingly investigating new approaches for creating learning environments where every student has access to a computing device. Even for those schools without plans for investing in tablets or laptops, as students bring their own increasingly powerful mobile devices into the classroom, many schools will become 1-1 in the years ahead with or without administrative support. We have a terrific set of panelist for our upcoming Webinars, so mark your calendars!
