ABOUT

ABOUT

Who we are.

We are the Parkland School District and we are committed to fostering learner-centric classrooms, supporting student voice and choice, providing authentic projects, and creating upstanding digital citizens. The TTC is our way of extending this commitment beyond the walls of the PSD classrooms, as we connect with educators from districts throughout the area.

What we do.

Educators from every corner of the Lehigh Valley (and beyond) come together to share ideas, explore new thoughts, create engaging opportunities and learn from each other at PSD's Teacher Tech Con. The PSDTTC is a full-day celebration of the best tools, resources, and strategies that educational technology has to offer!

How we do it.

Our day starts off with an engaging keynote presentation by a thought leader in the EdTech field. Then attendees choose from concurrent sessions on topics they are interested in, including tech tools & time savers, multimedia & digital storytelling, formative assessment, STEAM, innovative practices and more. And if that isn’t enough, free breakfast and lunch, a conference bag loaded with swag, and tickets for dozens of raffle prizes 

are provided as well!

Where we do it.

The PSD Teacher Tech Con began in 2016 with a small crowd at Parkland High School. That makes TTC20 our fifth conference and we are going back to our roots. This year's conference will return to Parkland High School with over 400 area educators, students, product and service exhibitors, and so much more.

 

Why we do it.

We do it for them.
