Practical Ed Tech Virtual Summer Camp 2021

For many years teachers from all over the world came to Maine join me for the Practical Ed Tech Summer Camp. Last year I had to shift to a virtual model. While I was hoping to return to an in-person format, this summer I’m going to host the Practical Ed Tech Summer Camp as a virtual event once again.

This summer I’m going to host three sessions of Practical Ed Tech Virtual Summer Camp. There will be a session in June, one in July, and a session in August. Each session will consist of ten live webinars spread across five days. All of the webinars will also be recorded for those who cannot attend the live sessions. Register here for the session of your choice.

You Should Attend!

Anyone who has an interest in learning new ideas for using technology in education is welcome to join and learn. In the past I’ve had teachers of all subjects and grade levels participate. Some have returned for multiple years. Teacher-librarians, instructional coaches, principals, and professors have all participated in past editions of the Practical Ed Tech Summer Camp.

You don’t need to be a “techy” person to participate and learn. All you need is a willingness to learn and a connection to the Internet.
