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.
These 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.
