Looking for a list of 2016 Ed Tech Conferences?
Looking for a list of 2016 Ed Tech Conferences? Well, I found it. I watch social media closely and it's my job to share some of the hot topics on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and other outlets that teachers, principals, students, and parents are contributing.
EdSurge recently posted a graphic outlining a list of all of the major ed tech conferences happening in 2016. They've split it up nicely between seasons and category. Below the graphic is a list of the conferences' names and more information such as where and when they take place.
While it would be great to attend them all, most of us don't have the time or the money to make every single one. We're hoping this chart can help you pick some out. Even if you can't make it to any of them, it's worth recording when the ones that interest you the most take place because you can still participate virtually. You'll find lots of great information on Twitter and other social media outlets during the events.
You can see the picture in high resolution here.
Are you attending any events this year? Have you attended any of these conferences in the past? What social media do you turn to during these events?
