PAECT Conference -- Keystone Technology Innovators
Participants in this course are attendees of the PAECT Conference Keystone Technology Innovators held during the week of July 26, 2021 through July 30, 2021 at Shippensburg University.
Course takers will participate in the four-day conference by attending a variety of sessions led by instructional technology experts. Following the conference, students will further expand, reflect, and examine their new knowledge through the analysis of their current classroom practices. Through the creation of classroom policies, procedures, and lessons, learners will showcase their understanding of top tools and ideas in educational technology today. All required course work must be completed by August 22nd.

I have never learned so much in one week or have been surrounded by so many people with new ideas.
