For the first time, the Texas ASCD* Ignite ’14 Conference is providing a marketplace area for conference attendees to review Exhibitors’ best practices for learning, teaching and leadership in education. Nearly 20 providers will be showcasing their solutions and services at Ignite ’14 from June 16 to June 18 at the Embassy Suites DFW in Frisco, Texas.
Walter McKenzie, a veteran educator and EdTech leader, is one of the attendees who encourages Texas ASCD attendees to visit Learning List at Ignite ’14. As he tweeted earlier today, Learning List is “working to align published and open resources for schools without bias.”
As the editor of the Actualization Blog, Walter regularly writes about topics and insights that he gleans through the transformation of education nationwide. You can read his latest topics here.
If you’re in the process of selecting instructional materials (IM) or looking ahead toward the upcoming adoption of IM for High School Math and K12 Social Studies for Texas’ schools/districts, we welcome you to speak with Jackie Lain, President of Learning List, at Texas ASCD’s Ignite 14 between June 16th and June 18th.
The conference is also a key venue for networking and learning from internationally recognized presenters in hands-on groundbreaking sessions designed to integrate technology in the curriculum. It’s a great way to provide the spark that teams need to develop innovative plans for curriculum development at schools and districts.
