Are you Going to Aldine's Technology Conference???

In a little over a month, Aldine ISD will host what has become the most prominent instructional technology integration conference event in this area of the country that is totally FREE for participants.

The Technology and Curriculum Conference of Aldine, orTCCA for short, has already registered 1600 participants for October 18th at Davis HS.

The event has an entire day of technology staff development sessions to choose from along with a strand of sessions more appropriate for administrators wanting to acquire tools on how to plan instructional technology integration in their respective buildings. Teachers can get INVEST credit for training sessions attended.


This year's theme is "Tech Like a Pirate." Come and join hundreds of fellow teachers and administrators and dozens of vendors such as Google, Microsoft, and Apple.
