FETC 2015

The Florida Educational Technology Conference (FETC) will be held in Orlando January 20th- 23rd. We are excited to participate in this annual event and encourage SJCSD educators to attend as well! This year FETC will feature new session types and exciting events, as well as a new dashboard for attendees. Our Instructional Technology staff will be presenting along with many other SJCSD teachers, however we encourage you to branch out and attend other sessions. You can see us any day!

We would love to meet up with other SJCSD teachers and administrators. This is tentatively scheduled for Thursday, Jan 22nd @ 7:00pm. If you would like to join us, you can register here!
