EdTechTeam Announces 'Summit at Sea'
Who said Professional Development has to be boring? Now educators can grow, network and innovate while learning Google Education tools on board an epic Eastern Caribbean cruise.
IRVINE, Calif., June 7, 2018 (Newswire.com) - EdTechTeam, a global network of educational technologists, is pleased to announce its inaugural “Summit at Sea,” an educational Caribbean cruise aboard the brand new Royal Caribbean Symphony of the Seas. The summit invites educators from all over the world to the high seas, which will play host to sessions that teach invaluable Google for Education tools and other educational technology strategies for the classroom—and in turn—positively impact student learning.
Departing from Miami July 27 - Aug 3, 2019, Summit at Sea promises to inspire and empower educators to implement new ways of using Google Apps in the classroom by way of inspirational sessions, a demo slam competition, informative breakouts, cutting-edge demonstrations, hands-on workshops and of course, adventurous excursions. Summit attendees (and their families) are also invited to join an EdTechTeam Jeep Geo Adventure in St. Maarten, where the team is tasked to put their new learnings to the test by utilizing the features of Google’s Geo products. And while the formal sessions will be invigorating, attendees are sure to carry on the conversation during social events on the ship!
The goal is to feature cutting-edge best practices in educational technology to help shape and promote great teaching. And what better place to get educators excited about Google's education tools than by teaching them on an Eastern Caribbean cruise?
