Learning, Lobsters, and Lighthouses

This afternoon I was going through a bunch of Tweets that I have saved during the last year. In doing so I came across this one from Jen Thomas that summarized what the Practical Ed Tech Summer Camps represent to the many teachers who have come over the years have experienced.

No, a lobster dinner isn’t included in the cost of registration, but great, inexpensive lobster is available within walking distance of the event.

What is included in registration is two days of hand-on learning in small groups with educators from all over the world. We’ve had teachers join us from New Zealand, Australia, the Philippines, Israel, England, Canada, and the United States. The registration cap of 25 people ensures that you’ll get the attention you need to learn as much as you desire.

The Practical Ed Tech BYOD Camp

Held on July 27th and 28th is for people who work in schools that have BYOD programs and 1:1 laptop programs (Mac or Windows), iPads, Android tablets, Windows tablets, or who have shared computers in a classroom or lab setting. Click here to register or here for more information. Registration is limited to 25 people. Group discounts are available to school districts sending five or more people.

The Practical Ed Tech Chromebook Camp

Held on July 18-19 is for people who work in schools that have 1:1 Chromebook programs or are interested in learning more about Chromebooks in education. This two day event is very similar to the BYOD event but is tailored to address the unique aspects of teaching with Chromebooks. As you might expect, there will be quite a bit of attention given to using Google Apps in the classroom. Click here to register or here for more information. Group discounts are available to school districts sending five or more people.

Early Registration Discounts

Register by March 24th to get the greatest discount. Your registration includes sixteen hours of professional development and breakfast and lunch for both days.
