You know that technology can help you to create a more effective and efficient classroom. But with all the options out there, it can be overwhelming.

Time is valuable and you don’t want to waste it.

If you only had some new, practical ideas and tools that you could implement in class tomorrow …

  • You would add some engagement and electricity back into class.
  • Students could create and connect in ways they hadn’t before.
  • With students really plugged in to class, learning would really stick.

Sound familiar? Then this workshop is for you!

Hi, I’m Matt Miller. If you’re familiar with the Ditch That Textbook blog or book, you may already know a little about me.

If not, here are some of the basics:

  • More than a decade of experience in the classroom in public schools

After running conference sessions, keynotes and workshops for teachers for several years, I’ve learned something …

  • Your time is precious and you don’t want to waste it.
  • You LOVE great classroom ideas.
  • You want to be able to implement them in class right away.
  • You don’t want to spend a bunch of time and effort figuring it out yourself.

I’ve got you covered.

My goal for this workshop is to equip, inspire and entertain.

It’s anything but the “sit and get” professional development you’ve probably experienced before. You’ll get your hands dirty on your own device, working with the tools and concepts we’ve discussed. That way, you’ll have some practice and can ask questions during the workshop so you’ll be ready to go in class.

We’ll laugh. There will be prize giveaways. You’ll have a great time and your classes will benefit, too!
