2013 Virtual METC Available Through Fall

Once again the Midwest Education Technology Conference offers free content to educators world-wide. Select presentations from METC 2013 were chosen for the annual  Virtual Conference, including those from Keynote Speakers, Featured Speakers, and Midwest Spotlight Educators.

sessionsThese presentations were live-streamed at the conference in February, and the archived session recordings are available until fall 2013, so educators can learn at their own pace, on their own device, and share the information with their colleagues.

Cooperating School Districts and METC would like to thank the speakers, as well as Conference Technologies, Inc. (provided streaming services) and SqoolTechs, LLC. (provide the conference Moodle).
