Rants & rAVes — Episode 1190: Have You Heard of IDEAcon?
First thing’s first: Have you ever heard of IDEA? The Illinois Digital Educators Alliance aims to “inspire, connect, and provide the educational community with opportunities that transform teaching and learning through technology.” On my latest Rants & rAVes episode, IDEA’s own storyteller, Stefanie Crawford, joins to talk about IDEAcon, the mid-February conference in Chicago, aimed at teachers, ed-tech managers and IT pros who support education. IDEAcon isn’t just a conference, by the way; it’s an educationally focused experience that includes a conference and tech exhibits from companies like SMART, Sony, Microsoft, Google, CDW, COMCAST and others.
