Going Beyond

Come to summer camp with us! Camp Tech will feature great presenters covering a variety of leading edge topics such as using Cloud Platforms and dealing with digital media. Session times are slightly longer than most conferences to make sure presenters have time to “dig in” without being too long. Special guest keynote, Jeff Giddens, will be here to challenge us to go beyond our current understandings about technology in education so that we can prepare today’s learners for tomorrow’s world. We will have T-Shirts, door prizes, and a lunch and tech preview area provided by Howard Technology all for just $25!

Register soon... space is limited to the first 50 people!
