For over 40 years, the Future of Education Technology® Conference (FETC), happening January 25 – 28, has connected educators with peers, thought leaders, and EdTech companies to experience innovative ideas and products that they can incorporate into their technology programs. Here are 3 reasons (and there are so many more) for educators to attend.

This event is your chance to make connections. Talk to peers and learn about other districts’ technology challenges and what they’ve overcome. Learning best practices from others can help you propel your plans past unforeseen hurdles.Find out what types of EdTech other educators have successfully implemented in their schools, learn what steps they took, and get inspired by their plans. Perhaps you might want to set your tech goals higher in your classroom or school. You may even be surprised by how much you know and can help fellow peers. By adding connections to your network, you’ll be able to reconnect and share insights on future challenges and get guidance as you incorporate new EdTech into your lessons.

You’ll hear from education practitioners who are breaking the mold at their schools and get inspired to evolve your technology strategy, all while earning CEUs.
