New Workshops and Keynotes for 2018

Facilitating on-site workshops and giving keynotes at conferences is one of the ways that I am able to fund Free Technology for Teachers and, in turn, future college tuition costs for my daughters. For 2018 I have developed some new standard offerings to go along with the custom workshops that I am always happy to develop for your school. You can book me for either by sending an email to richard (at) byrne.media or by completing the form on my work with me page

Here are the new workshops and keynotes I'm offering in 2018:
  • Built to Last - Identifying What Works in Educational Technology
    In the last decade I've seen thousands of educational technology tools and programs. Some come and go quickly while others stand the test of time. In this presentation I feature not only the tools that stand the test of time, but the characteristics to look for in choosing the next educational technology tool to use in your classroom.
  • Edupreneurship 101 - Turning Your Teaching Skills Into Extra Income
    It's hard to be a good teacher when you're worried about paying your bills. I know that because I spent two years doing that before I figured out that I had some skills that could help me earn a little extra money online while still doing the job that I loved. In this workshop I will share the strategies and tools used by me and other teachers to turn our teaching skills into extra income.
  • The Past, Present, and Future of AR & VR in Education
    This research-based presentation offers an overview of how augmented reality and virtual reality has been used in education for more than two decades. Attendees will walk away with an understanding of how to use these immersive technologies in their classrooms.
  •  DIY App Creation
    Not that long ago creating a mobile app required extensive coding skills and knowledge of programming. Today, there are many tools that make it possible for most teachers and students to develop their own functioning apps without any prior programming experience. Participants in this workshop will develop an app.
