Announcements & Review

1. Upcoming events:

  • The next workshop date is scheduled for Thursday, April 25.

2. Let’s take this time to reflect on last month’s TEC21 Challenges and share experiences. What happened? Were you successful? Did you come across any challenges?

3. “Celebration Day” is coming up! What does the format of the day look like and what can you do to prepare?

Helpful tips:

  • Think of the day as a mini-conference and each of you will be the presenters.
  • 10-15 minutes show some things you’ve accomplished this year – what you did, how you did it and why you did it.
  • Click on the SHARED DOCUMENTS. Locate your center’s doc and add your name, a description of what you’re sharing and provide your links. Have samples of student projects hosted on the web? Share those links, too! Here’s an example of what the line-up looked like at one of the workshop centers last year – SAMPLE.
