#SAtech and #EDtech Picks for the #ACPA14 Conference

PrintThis year the Convention team did a major overhaul of the schedule and session types to bring a fresh approach to our professional development.  Much of this innovation relates to technology, social media, and cutting edge practices.  Below you will find general sessions related to technology as well as the new “Genius Labs.”  In addition to these programs, check out the HEd Talk and keynote speakers (and Theorist HEdTalks, too).  Many address technology-related topics.

(And if I missed a session, please let me know!)
