The Technology Conference Steering Committee and Department of Educational Technology are happy to announce that registration is now open for the 18th Annual Palm Beach Technology Conference on March 18th, 2016 at Santaluces Community High School. Professional educators and educational support staff are welcome to register now!
The Committee has put together another exciting lineup of nationally-known speakers including our Keynote speaker, Adam Bellow, and Closing Keynote speaker Steve Dembo. Additionally the conference will feature speakers from Microsoft, Google, and other technology giants that will be in attendance to meet with our teachers and learn how they can better support education.
As always, the great majority of our breakout sessions will be provided by our own Palm Beach County teachers and staff, where you can learn about topics as varied as assistive technology, how to make the most of the resources available through your District Google account, how to engage learning with mobile and tablet devices, and how to effectively incorporate the use of technology in daily instruction. With nearly 100 breakout sessions to choose from there is truly something for everyone.
New this year is the MakerSpace, located in the Vendor Hall, and sponsored by the Library Media Services Department. Be sure to visit so you can find out how Maker technologies such as 3-D printing and interactive visualization tools are transforming today’s school media centers and classrooms.
As always, the Vendor Hall will also be packed with companies from around the country displaying their new products and talking with attendees one-on-one.
And if that isn’t enough, we’ll also be featuring lots and lots of great giveaways throughout the day from our sponsors and local businesses, and we’ll have our usual awesome door prizes including printers, laptops, and tablets that are given away at the Closing Session.
Thanks to the generosity of our sponsoring companies, the Palm Beach Technology Conference is completely free for educators and educational support staff. Registration is open now and you do not want to miss this fun opportunity to learn!
PLEASE NOTE: March 18th is Bring Your Child To Work Day for Palm Beach County Schools. Unfortunately we can NOT accommodate children on the day of the conference due to space limitations.
