EdTech 10: iNACOL Edition
This week our team is saddling up and heading to San Antonio to attend the always popular iNACOL Symposium.
We are thrilled to once again to be listening to, chatting with and presenting alongside the many experts, practitioners, educators, policymakers and researchers working to transform education. We can’t wait to share what we see and learn over the next few days on the blog and social media, so stay tuned to our channels for frequent updates!
In honor of this leading event for K-12 competency-based, blended and online learning, this week’s stories share several new resources, guidebooks, platforms and toolkits created to help edleaders continue their transformational work long after we hit the lights on #iNACOL16.
