Apparently, people love to get PD in their PJ's!
The Ditch That Textbook Digital Summit brought professional development into your living room, on your favorite couch, with slippers and pajamas and coffee (or hot chocolate or tea ... whatever your fancy).
The nine video presentations -- and replays of the nine 2016 presentations -- inspired more than 10,000 educators all over the world and gave them practical ideas for the 2018. (Amazing!)
After the summit closed and videos went offline on January 1, the tweets and emails started coming in.
"I missed the summit and I'm so disappointed!"
"Can you please open the videos up again?"
"I really want to share this with my staff now that school is back in session!"
I hate to disappoint people and would love to see more people experience Ditch Summit.
I'm opening up the Ditch That Textbook Digital Summit back up for a week -- starting on Friday, January 12.
The nine video presentations from 2017 -- and all nine from 2016 -- will be available to watch. That also includes the video notes and the certificates for professional development credit.
Head to DitchSummit.com to get on the list for email updates with links to all of the presentations.
