EdSurge Tech for Teachers Summit

The Tennessee Department of Education and EdSurge are co-hosting the Tech for Teachers Summit on Tuesday, April 15 as part of the 31st Annual Tennessee Educational Technology Conference. EdSurge Summits create a place and a space for candid two-way discussion between the users and developers of edtech products.

Expect a meaningful dialogue between those who create tech tools and those who use them in their classrooms. It’s a chance for educators to kick the tires of the latest and most innovative software and technology in a non-sales environment. Educators are encouraged to candidly share what works and what they need.

More information about on the Tech Teachers Summit and registration can be found here as well as a teacher's account of EdSurge’s last summit in Baltimore on Feb 22.

PARCC Interactive Lab   

Designed for school and district educational technology leaders and instructors, the Tennessee Educational Technology Conference (TETC) offers opportunities for growth and development through training sessions,  interest sessions, and peer networking. TETC strengthens educators' knowledge of education technology, and promotes increasing the implementation and use of high quality technology in Tennessee school districts, benefiting children and communities statewide.

TETC 2014 will be focused on the opportunity of online assessment.  Day One will focus on instruction to support PARCC readiness.  Day Two will focus on the technology needed to implement and support the PARCC assessment. 

This year, the Tennessee Educational Technology Conference (TETC) will offer a new opportunity for attendees: the PARCC Interactive Lab.  This area will provide a hands-on lab to evaluate a variety of devices, network gear, and management systems (network and device).  There will be no additional fee for visiting the PARCC Interactive Lab.
