People Learning & Asking "Y" Digital Age Teacher Exploration
A PLAYDATE is a new kind of conference event. NO presenters. NO agenda. Just PLAYing.
Think about the last time you attended an ed-tech professional learning event. Oftentimes we leave full of new knowledge and a list overflowing with new apps, programs, and skills to try out. However, once we return to the "real world" we lack the time and support to actually try out these new tools. At PLAYDATEs, educators from around the area join together for a few hours and just play. They work together to learn about ed-tech apps, programs, and tools with one another. There are no presenters, no experts, and no agenda. Simply time to play, tinker and explore all at no cost thanks to the REMC Association.
