LIVE DAY AND ON-DEMAND ACCESS

Participating in an online conference is easy, meaningful – and fun! You’ll get access to every single session, handout, and breakouts at your convenience.

 

You can attend online LIVE on February 4th using a single login-link sent to your email on the day of the conference. You'll be able to chat with presenters and other attendees through the online chat bar. But don't worry - no one will see you (so you can stay in your PJs if you want!).

 

But what if you can't attend live?

 

No problem! You can watch the entire conference (or any session you miss) at a time that is easier on your schedule in our exclusive, password-protected archive site. You'll have access to that for a FULL YEAR. So you have complete flexibility to use the conference sessions/materials as you need, when you nee.

   

BOTH options are included in your registration fee.

This was a phenomenal experience. I can’t wait to go into school Monday to talk my principal’s ear off and fellow teachers.

– Gayle K.

terri-w

I’ve been doing this for 20 years so I’m no spring chicken but…Had two new creative ideas within the first 20 minutes. By the end of the day I had nine activities, four books I want to buy, three brain break ideas, and three new technologies to investigate. WOW what a wonderful day.

– Terri W.
