Fort Bend ISD’s Educational Technology Department hosted its second annual Technology Conference at Ridge Point High School this summer, with more than 700 teachers, administrators and staff attending. The event gave participants the opportunity to explore the various resources available to facilitate the integration of technology into curriculum by attending four sessions that focused on lessons in Google Earth to Adobe Acrobat Professional.
Keynote speaker, Wesley Fryer, inspired educators to use digital learning tools to spark learning inside and outside of the classroom with his message titled, “Leading Schools with Digital Vision in a Bubblesheet World.” David Wallace, former Mayor of The City of Sugar Land and author of One Nation Under Blog, offered the closing remarks. He delivered thought-provoking advice on the need to inject a sense of fairness and balance into the blogging process without trampling on our first amendment rights. Wallace and Fryer were among 36 speakers, presenters and vendors that took part in the conference.
“The Technology Conference was first class! I felt like I was back in corporate America and attending an expensive conference/training! From the first keynote speaker to the door prize giveaway ending, I was engaged, excited and learning new things!”
“The Technology Conference ROCKS! It must continue! It is a great experience and resource for our district!!”
