New at EdTech, Part 1
This year EdTech is offering exciting new featured events for our attendees. We hope these additional learning opportunities will offer attendees a more enriched experience at EdTech. Each week we will feature one of these new events. First up is our Assistive Technology (AT) MEGAShare.
The AT MEGAShare event is an opportunity for EdTech attendees to participate in a live walkthrough “safari” that will deliver a showcase of interactive, hands-on AT featured by various exhibitors. Attendees will go wild for this AT petting zoo experience! Each 45-minute time slot features 3-4 different vendors, all located in Booth 533. Attendees will have the opportunity to see product demonstrations and ask specific questions to the vendors. Visit our website for the participating vendors and times.
Be sure to visit the conference website and our Facebook and Twitter pages for updates and the latest conference news.
We hope to see you at EdTech this year!
