NECC 2007


The 28th National Educational Computing Conference is being held June 24-27 in Atlanta, Georgia. LEGO Education representatives will be there.


From the site: "Join more than 18,000 teachers, technology coordinators, library media specialists, teacher educators, administrators, policy makers, industry representatives, and students from all over the world who'll gather June 24–27 at the Georgia World Congress Center in the heart of Downtown Atlanta.


Our purpose? To help shape the future of education. How? By bringing together the best Ed Tech has to offer. NECC 2007 boasts more than 700 presentations in a variety of program formats that:

* highlight promising practices for leadership and school transformation
* showcase the impact of 21st-century learning environments and virtual schools
* demonstrate the impact of technology on student achievement and school improvement
* emphasize the ethics and equity issues involved in all these topics


This year we're especially focused on technology's role in developing 21st-century learners. What's our collective 2020 vision? How do we carry that vision forward into reality? Can we develop an intentional course toward that better future?

Greater opportunities for all 21st-century learners—let's keep our eyes on that prize as we explore educational horizons and discover together a better future."
