April EdTech Events

Happy Spring from SLOCUE!

It was great connecting with so many SLOCUE folks at National CUE last month. Great session topics, amazing hands-on playground fun, and numerous networking options made for a productive experience for all. We return refreshed and excited about new opportunities ahead.
 We have two fabulous local events coming up this month we’d like to share.

1. EdCamp Santa Maria is next weekend, Saturday, April 23rd at Righetti High School.

EdCamp is an opportunity for teachers to come together and learn from each other about the best things going on in classrooms. Teachers are always looking to improve their practice and EdCamp is a great way for them to build collegiality, to share their own successes, and find ways to make improvements that lead to improved learning with their own students. 

EdCamp is FREE professional development offered locally and hosted by the Santa Barbara CUE group. This year they have great sponsors and will have prizes including books from great education authors (Ditch that Textbook, PowerUp, 50 things for Google Classroom), premium software licenses, t-shirts, and two of the local Rotary clubs are sponsoring lunch at no cost to participants.

2. Innovation Learning Camp is the following weekend, April 30th at Templeton High School.

Local EdTech Superhero Jon Corippo is the keynote speaker and we have multiple sessions scheduled. Interested in learning more about Makerspace? We have an abundance of experts scheduled to answer any questions you have. The afternoon’s highlight will be a STEM playground full of hands-on maker projects that you can use in your classroom.

You can find the current schedule by visiting this link. For more information and to register (deadline is April 25th) visit the SLOCOE website. Panera lunch is provided and we will have a drawing at the end of the day that will include a Chromebook giveaway.

Happy New Year to our SLOCUE members!

We just finished a busy and event filled year that included two successful full blown conferences in Paso Robles and Arroyo Grande, a well attended and insightful EdCamp SLO, and numerous casual #coffeecue and #brewcue meet-ups around the county.


We continue our partnership with Central Coast Stem (CCSTEM) and are delighted to be co-sponsoring their next event on February 2nd in SLO. It’s free and we hope to se many SLOCUE members there.
