Educational Technology Integration

EdmodoCon 2014

Education opens minds. Technology connects them.
We bring you the best of both, all in one place. -
Edmodo


Become part of the world’s largest K-12 social learning community where teachers, students, and parents can connect safely and securely. If you would like to know more about this useful tool then join me for a come and go workshop day! In fact, you don't even have to actually join us in person! If you have your own device, have an Edmodo account, and are already comfortable using Edmodo then you may join us from the comfort of your home! The Anna High School location is provided only for if you want to utilize the computer lab, meet up with other teachers to discuss in person, and eat some delicious snacks! Why not make a party of learning how to integrate more technology within the classroom?
