iMake-KS - An Innovative EdTech Conference ....

Several members of my Professional Learning Network (PLN) have noticed that I have not been as active in participating in Twitter Chats, Blog Posting, or Presenting at Conferences. This past year I decided to focus on obtaining a doctorate in education. I have focused on becoming a Teacher Leader in Digital Transformation (a.k.a. Edtech).  For my doctorate, I can either choose to do a research project or creating something. I have decided to create an Innovative Edtech Conference for my Capstone project. With the help of my PLN iMake-KS is going from a wish to a dream and into reality.

The Plan:
iMake-KS will be a two-day conference that will be held in the fall of 2019. Date and venue yet to be determined. The conference will have both in-person components as well as virtual components. I will be seeking out educators and students to share their innovative ideas, lessons, projects, etc...

Keep in mind iMake-KS is still in the development phase. If you would like to be apart of my Dream Team and help iMake-KS a reality please send me a direct message via Twitter. @katieann_76.
