Technology in Action Conference

July 19-20

Hosted by Denton ISD's Instructional Technology conference, this event is quickly becoming a must-attend event. Registration fee is $35 for anyone outside of Denton ISD.

The conference organizers are looking for presenters. If you submit a proposal to present and it's accepted there is no registration fee!!! If you submit a proposal to present and it's NOT accepted, FISD will pay your registration fee. All of you are doing fabulous things in your library so share that with others! So that I can verify your submission, share your proposal with me. No more than 2 presenters per session proposal. If you choose not to submit a proposal, you will be responsible for paying your own way.

This conference counts towards summer PD hours!
