San Antonio_blog San Antonio, Texas: Location of TCEA

An EdTech conference is one of two things: wildly beneficial or a massive waste of time.

It’s easy to lose sight of your goals. Be smart about how you spend your professional development hours this year.

Don’t waste your time aimlessly wandering around, overwhelmed by the sheer number of booths, products and presentations. There’s a lot to learn and discover at conferences. Make a plan beforehand about who and what you want to see – and when you’ll see them.

To help you prioritize, we’ve compiled a list of upcoming EdTech conferences and must-see presentations at each. You’ll discover new tech and methods that benefit schools, and you’ll walk away with ideas you can immediately put into action.

Plus, Team Squirrels will be at each conference below. Ask us questions, demo products and meet our Alpha Squirrels along the way.

Here are the five EdTech conferences you must attend in early 2019:
