“The best people to teach teachers are other teachers,” said Paget Hetherington, Mimio’s director of global marketing. “All of our presenters have worked in and around classrooms for years, so they understand what session attendees have to deal with and will dispense realistic, useful advice.”
The fall 2014 series includes the following sessions:

More than 1,300 educators and administrators from K-12 schools and districts across North America nominated their favorite ed-tech products or services this past spring. To maintain the integrity of the program, nominations from vendors were not accepted. Nominating educators were asked to describe how they were using each product to improve teaching, learning, or school administration—and to what effect.
