Other Ed Tech Learning Opportunities

Tech Across District Lines (TADL)

Monday, June 20th, 4:30-6pm

The Steam & Dream Lab at Richman Elementary School (700 S. Richman Ave., Fullerton)

Are you a teacher looking to find best practices for integrating technology? Are you a principal hoping to motivate your staff and students to embrace 21st century learning tools? Are you a district administrator trying to identify LEA best practices?


Have you looked all over for support at conferences, seminars, Twitter chats, only to find talking points, buzz words, one-way communication, and keepers of knowledge talking at you and not listening to you?


If you feel like we do, then it's time for a change. It's time to engage in a conversation. It's time to listen to others who are quietly making waves in their classroom, school, district (you!). It's time to connect across district lines and make meaningful, ongoing relationships with educators just like you.


With Technology Across District Lines (TADL) we want to create a living, always-evolving group that includes educators making connections between districts.


There is no agenda. There are no sessions. There won't be a panel. This isn't an Ed Camp; it's a conversation.
