Make the Most of Your Conference Experience with Edmodo

This year’s Technology Conference will be Powered by Edmodo for the fourth year in a row!   Edmodo is a free social learning network with the largest community of educators edmodo-2016and students in the world.  The platform provides a safe and easy way to collaborate and share content.  It is a place where you can connect and communicate before, during, and after our conference.  In addition, many sessions have an Edmodo group where you can access presentation materials, ask the presenter questions, discuss ideas shared during the session, and continue the conversation after the conference is over.

Signing up for an Edmodo account is free and easy.  If you do not already have an account, we recommend you create and set up your account prior to arriving at the conference.  You can begin joining conference session groups today!
