We help students understand the human-made world.
Call for Presentations 2018
I would like to invite all MassTEC members and vendors to share their experience and insight by presenting at the 2018 Annual Conference at Fitchburg State University on Friday October 19. This year, in addition to your presentation, we will publish your abstracts and relevant links on our website during the Conference. Also, presentations will be recorded for use as teaching aids for FSU Education students.
Vendors are asked to team with a classroom teacher who has incorporated their products in the classroom
The 2018 theme is Technology/Engineering Brings Education to Life and the focus will be on making interdisciplinary connections as well as connecting to the Practices described in the Standards.
Applications and brief abstracts – see link – will be due no later than September 14 but, this is a great time to think about successes you would like to share with your colleagues. The Board will review all submissions and notify presenters by September 21.
I am looking forward to your ideas and hope you have a restful summer,
Doug Shattuck, Presentation Chair
