A Last Minute Opening at the Practical Ed Tech Summer Camp

The Practical Ed Tech Summer Camp starts next Monday morning in Portland, Maine. The event has been sold out since May, but I just had a last minute cancellation. There is one seat available now. Click here to register or read on for more information.

The Practical Ed Tech Summer Camp is a hands-on exploration of how to use free technology tools in your classroom. This two day workshop is based on my framework for using technology to help students discover new information, discuss their ideas, and demonstrate their knowledge. Registration is limited to ensure that every participant gets the attention he or she deserves.

This year's Practical Ed Tech Summer Camp is being held at the Holiday Inn By the Bay in downtown Portland, Maine. Healthy breakfasts and hearty lunches will fuel your brain for learning and are included in your registration. And when we're done for the day you can walk to dozens of restaurants along the Old Port's cobblestone streets, walk to the ocean, or even hop a boat and take a sunset cruise to see the islands in Casco Bay. Beaches are just a few minutes drive from the hotel.

The two day workshop is based on my framework of Discovery, Discussion, and Demonstration. The first day is focused helping students use technology to discover and discuss. Day two is focused on demonstrating knowledge by creating new digital content including podcasts, videos, and other multimedia productions. Click here for general outlines of the day.
