When it comes to innovating with technology, sometimes teachers need a little help. Thankfully, conferences are the perfect place to learn more about the craft and develop valuable communities.
From March 14-17, teachers, administrators, IT staff and thought leaders from around the country will head to Palm Springs, Calif. to celebrate the 40th anniversary of CUE at its annual spring conference.
“This year, CUE celebrates 40 years as a nonprofit organization, inspiring innovative learners by fostering community, personalizing learning, infusing technology, developing leadership and advocating educational opportunities for all,” reads the conference website.
Over four days, attendees will learn about everything from holistic technology integration to Google Docs hacks from sessions, workshops and panels held by the most innovative education leaders in the state (and country).
The conference will kick off with free workshops on the afternoon of March 14, followed by a welcome keynote that evening from author, educator and EdTech must-read blogger, Matt Miller. He is expected to draw from his book and blog of the same name, Ditch That Textbook, and speak about how educators can use technology to be creative and take risks outside of their comfort zones.
Other keynote speakers include Meredith Walker, co-founder and executive director of Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls, and Peter and Paul Reynolds, founder and CEO, respectively, of FableVision, an educational multimedia company colocated at the Boston Children’s Museum. Spring CUE 2018 will wind down at noon on March 17 with a closing keynote by Erin Klein, an award-winning educator, design consultant and another EdTech must-read blogger.
In addition to the nearly 500 sessions, the conference also will host an exhibit hall packed with the biggest companies in education technology.
