EdTech Express

Tips... Teachers... Students... in 5 minutes or less!

MLCHS EdTech ShareFair

Tuesday, Dec. 8th @ 3:30p - 4:30p

This edition of EdTech Express will combine EdTech Tips and the Teacher Spotlight to introduce our first school-wide EdTech ShareFair. During the ShareFair, eight of Collin's teachers will provide 7-minute mini sessions/Q&A about how they are currently using technology in their classrooms. Please have an idea of which sessions you will like to attend before Tuesday; we will only have 1 minute to transition between sessions and you will likely only be able to attend five. See the brief descriptions below.
