While I can’t attend this particular conference, here are a few reasons why you should:
  • It’s FREE! (You can’t beat that)
  • Your school is a GAFE school
  • Your school is going GAFE in the near future
  • You want to learn more about GAFE to plant the seed in your school
  • You want to meet great presenters and connect with other teachers
There a plenty of other reasons to attend this event and events like this. The best reason is because you can never learn too much about something that is making such a huge impact in your field and profession.
