Opening Keynote
A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Future
We live and teach in an absolutely remarkable time. But it is not without its problems. With so much amazing technology available at our fingertips and so many obstacles in the school setting, this session takes aim at the possibilities that are out there to make technology work to expand our horizons like the conference theme suggests. The session will make the audience think, challenge them to move beyond current comfort zones, and hopefully spark some change while inspiring them to battle any problems and naysayers in their way.
