NCCE Conference 2014 - a great professional development experience

NCCE Conference 2014

As a teacher, and especially as a teacher of technology, it’s important that I stay informed best practices, new technologies in the classroom, and connect with other education professionals who share common interests. One way that I do this is by participating in professional development conferences, such as NCCE – Northwest Council for Computer Education. Conferences like these provide opportunities for me to meet other educators, see what new technologies are coming to the classroom, gain hands-on experience with new devices, gain training in new courses, and see how other educators are producing successful results in their classroom.

Since pursuing a career in technology education I have attended the following professional development conferences:

  • UACTE (Utah Association for Career and Technical Education) Annual Conference 2011
  • UACTE Annual Conference 2012
  • SuperQuest Eugene conference – 2012
  • NCCE Seatle Washington Conference – 2014

In time, I hope to participate in more professional development conferences, including:

  • ISTE (International Society for Technology Education)
  • OETC (Oregon Educational Technology Consortuim)

This artifact meets the requirements for Standard 5 by:

  • Demonstrating participation in local learning communities
  • Demonstrating exploration of creative applications of technology to improve student learning
  • Demonstrating events where I can evaluate and reflect on current research and professional practices surrounding the use of existing and emerging digital tools/resources that could potentially support student learning
