TCEA 2019: What To Know
You may still be taking it all in from FETC, but TCEA is right around the corner! We’ll be in San Antonio, Texas at this amazing event February 5-7. We’re excited to host more innovative educators at our booth #845 to share their experiences with Schoology and edtech in general. The intimate setting at our booth allows for anyone attending to stop by, listen in on a session, and then have the opportunity to actually connect with the speaker, as well as other educators, throughout the day to keep the conversation going.
We will be holding various presentation at our booth #845 on both Wednesday, February 6th and Thursday, February 7th. On Tuesday, February 4th, we will be at the booth from 4-5PM for a Community Meetup and a session on student understanding.
