Free PD for teachers

Mass Digital Publication at Burlington High School is offering free PD for teachers. This is a very exciting event and I encourage you to attend! June 25-27, 2012! Again, this is FREE pd, with lunch included, pd certificates will also be given. "The MA Digital Publication Collaborative will highlight ways for educators across the content areas and levels to integrate new and emerging technology literacies into 1:1 learning environments. There will be sessions that focus on iPad integration, digital content curation, digital publication creation and distribution, and many other educational discussions." (Taken from website)

6 of us have signed up from West Boylston so far and we would love to have more teachers attend.
6/1 Update: If you are thinking about signing up, do so ASAP, I visited Burlington yesterday and they are closing it out at 400 attendees and they are getting close.
