Get ready ed tech, pedago.me’s coming for ya…
I am super excited to share that I will be part of an interactive forum with some extraordinary instructional technologist and digital innovators this October on the Metropolitan State University campus in Denver, Colorado.

On October 7th, 2016, we’ll be facilitating a lively face-to-face and virtual (tweet chat) discussion around popular ed tech challenges and offer up some tips to overcome these barriers. Register for TLTS here (it’s free) and head to the Student Success Building (SSB) Room 204 at 4PM MST. If you can’t make it in person, follow #pedagome on Twitter and join the discussion online.
