I’m so excited to finally attend one of the GAFE Summits put on by the amazing EdTechTeam in Franklin, IN on April 8-9, 2017 (I’ve been unable to attend the past two years it’s been held in Cincinnati- would all of my friends hurry up and get married, already?!). I’ll be presenting on Going Global in the Classroom for beginners on Saturday, April 8 at 3:00 p.m. in room C231. I’ll post all my session resources to Talk Tech With Me on April 8. I’m especially pumped about two of the keynotes as well- Jennie Magiera whose book I just finished (read my review here), and Jessica Loucks who was in my Google Innovator cohort! #GirlPower!
EdTechTeam describes the Summit experience as,
“Enjoy two days of inspiring keynote speakers, empowering hands-on breakout sessions, and fun activities including a high-energy demo slam.
Choose from compelling sessions about all the Apps in the G Suite for Education (Drive, Docs, Slides, Sheets, Drawings, YouTube, Classroom, Maps and more) as well as sessions that go beyond the tools that feature cutting edge best practices in educational technology and great teaching!
Connect with world class presentations by our passionate and FUN Spotlight and General speakers – most of them being Google Certified Teachers, Google Education Trainers and Google Innovators. They’ll share their passion and expertise on topics like Project Based Learning (PBL), Digital Literacy, STEM, Math, Digital Citizenship, Assistive Technology and more! Best of all, you’ll add each of these speakers to your Personal Learning Network and connect with them throughout and after your Summit experience.”
And from everything I’ve heard and seen on social media, it is all that and more. So if you’re going to be anywhere near the area on April 8-9, join us at Franklin Community High School for a couple of amazing days of learning and sharing! You can register to attend here, and don’t forget to download the app (iTunes or Android).
