We reached to a few educators via twitter to find out what every Macul attendee should do. What we learned was a great set of tips that can help you get the most out of any event you attend.

Join Newmind Group at the EDU Computing roundtable event, at MACUL Conference 2014 on March 12th, where you will have the opportunity to learn from other educators and education technology leaders. Learn “best practices” and share ideas and experiences with other Michigan public and private schools that have successfully deployed 1:1 programs in a roundtable discussion.
There are at least 10 expos a year in Michigan dedicated to the education space, not counting national expos. Due to the current technology environment all of them touch on technology in some way.
What does it usually look like? A schedule of sessions where a single speaker or pair of speakers give a presentation for 60min & impart information to session attendees.
Newmind has served more than 900 public and private sector clients across North America. These clients include over 300 schools, businesses, and non-profit organizations that have purchased Chromebooks, charging carts, and ChromeOS training. In all that experience we’ve learned that the more people who are able to contribute - more can be learned.
There are many schools in Michigan that have deployed 1:1 environments. Others have experience deploying network infrastructure and still others have great Professional Development programs. With all this experience, there are still schools that have yet to embrace technology, but they want to. What would happen if we put all the knowledge and curiosity into a room together?!
The EDU Computing roundtable event will be a live discussion where the attendees decide the topics discussed and also provide insights into technology solutions. To ensure we touch on your topic we ask that you register by February 18th. We will reach out to our 800+ educational clients to invite members of the education community to the roundtable event to share their experience.
We want this roundtable session to be valuable for you. To do that we need to know what you hope to gain from the sessions. Some topics we hear questions about most often include:
- End User support
- Curriculum Integration
- Professional Faculty Development
- Software Integration
- Infrastructure Development
Register by February 18th to ensure your topic is covered during the roundtable session.
