We had a fantastic time at the Technology & Curriculum Conference of Aldine (TCCA) this year! Wow! They really know how to put on a great event! We were presenting at each session time except for lunch so we didn’t get to attend any sessions, but the talk from attendees was that is was a big hit. The facilities were so beautiful. Great job, everyone!
We promised the attendees at our sessions information on getting the resources for our sessions. The conference was backed by Edmodo and we put all our resources on the session groups. We realize now, that many of you are not familiar with Edmodo so you were not able to access the resources when you wanted them. So, if you don’t already have an Edmodo account:
- Go to the Edmodo web site
- Select the I’m a Teacher button
- Fill in the blanks and sign up.
- Find your school, update your teacher profile…
- When you get to the main Edmodo page, click the plus sign in the Groups space in the left sidebar
- Select Join
- Enter one of the codes we gave you during our session
- Tell Me A Story (aelqjw)
- Bringing Lessons to Life (pkttum)
- Chicks Picks (x1e0yj)
- Publishers R Us (zhj4e5)
The resources can be found in posts in the main section or by going to the folders link on the group’s page.
If you are still unable to access the resources, please let us know!
