21st Century Learning Conference by @CUENV

It is already that time of the year again, the beginning of the new school year.  While many of us do not want to think about that just yet, most of us will be back in the next month or so.  Now is the perfect time to start thinking about professional development for the coming school year.  As vice president of CUE-NV (Computer Using Educators of Nevada), it is my privilege to announce details of our fall state conference.  


What: 
 21st Century Learning Conference sponsored by CUE-NV

When:

6705 Vegas Valley Drive
Las Vegas, NV 89142

From now until August 31st, you can register for the conference for $89.  The price of registration includes each of the following:

Maybe you are a Google guru, a wizard with iPad apps, a god(dess) of blogging or podcasting, whatever it may be.  Perhaps you would like to share your expertise on various educational technology.  We are accepting applications for presentations for the conference as well.  If you are accepted as a presenter, you will receive a free registration for the conference, allowing you to attend both days of the conference and take advantage of everything the conference has to offer.  If you are interested in presenting at the conference, please click here for the form, or copy and paste the following into your browser:  http://bit.ly/CUE-NVFallpresenter

To take it even further, maybe you work for an educational technology company.  Perhaps you would like to peddle your wares, be it an amazing new piece of hardware, an amazing new LMS or application, or protective coverings for hardware since we all know that we are going to drop the technology and destroy it without that covering.  If you are interested in a vendor booth at the conference, we have you covered.  You will receive a free registration to the conference and if you are interested, you may also present by filling out the form above.  For more information on vendor registration, please click here, or copy and paste the following into your browser:  

I hope you can make some time in your busy schedule to attend in some way, whether as a vendor, a presenter, or simply an educator wanting to learn more and perfect your craft.  If you have any questions, please feel free to tweet me (@AndersonEdTech), email me (anderka1@nv.ccsd.net or the conference email, 21stcenturylearning@cue-nv.org), or comment on this post.  

Until next time...
