Seattle Academy Staff Attend NCCE Conference

Seattle Academy Staff Attend NCCE Conference
March 31, 2017 – Last week, Mark Zavala (Technology Support), Andrew Spitzer (Development Assistant), and Long Dam (Technology Support) attended the 2017 Northwest Council for Computer Education Conference for three days of professional development. The trip to Portland, Oregon offered them an opportunity to meet with peers around the region; and immerse themselves in an oasis of information relevant to everyday workflows.
The conference structure included daily workshops, breakout sessions, and an exhibit hall that offered face-to-face interaction with the products and providers of some of the technologies we use here at Seattle Academy and will hope to implement in current and future classrooms.
Sessions attended gave each one of them wonderful content that can be put back into their work here at SAAS.
Below is a list of workshops and session each attended:
3D printing with Photoshop, Implementing Innovative Tech, and VR in the classroom, Connecting, Communicating and Collaborating with Personal Learning Networks on Twitter
