Fantastic Day of Learning at EdTech on the River Raisin 2017!

We celebrated technology-using teachers in Monroe County on Tuesday, June 20th, 2017 at the first annual EdTech on the River Raisin technology conference at MCISD. We had over 75 attendees and 21 presenters. Our presenters were almost all Monroe County educators who use technology effectively in their classrooms. We had awesome feedback from our attendees and almost everyone said they’d recommend the conference to a friend. Highlights from the day include:
