Feeling overwhelmed? ... So were we!

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Meet two teachers, Meghan Snee and Melinda Soliwoda, who attended the BLC conference last summer. They walked in with new iPads, not knowing how they would be incorporated in the classroom, let alone how to set up a blog...and what's a hashtag anyway...and what do you mean teachers should be tweeting?!
Coming from a school district that was attempting to launch themselves into the 21st century, these teachers were eager to learn, but feeling completely overwhelmed at how much they didn't know existed in the land of technology in today's classroom.

Come hear first hand how these two teachers were inspired, motivated, and determined to turn their classrooms into the future of learning after three days at the BLC conference. Learn how they blogged, tweeted, posted, linked, uploaded, embedded and flipped their thinking. And no, they aren't teaching high schoolers, they teach second and fifth grade. If they can do this, so can you.
These two teachers are still learning something new about technology everyday. They enjoy sharing their knowledge with their students and colleagues. They want to share it with you, and help you feel less overwhelmed and more, 'I can do this!'
