Are the sessions lecture or hands-on?

We believe that individuals develop skills faster by completing the activities themselves. We have designed every session to have trainer-led, hands-on activities with the applicable device(s) needed.

How is T4E different than training conferences?

Many conferences provide a vast amount of valuable information, but little-to-no time to process the information, apply it to your situation, or complete hands-on activities that develop skills. At T4E, we have structured every session to focus on developing 2-3 skills that you can immediately apply in your classroom or throughout your school.  Every topic is specifically designed by educators for educators.

I am not comfortable using technology. How do I know if I have the skills needed to attend this event?

We want you to be successful. While most of our TECHNOVATION TRACK sessions do not have pre-requisites, some do require some knowledge of a product in order to meet the objectives of the session.  Each session description will indicate a pre-requisite if there is one.  If you are still in doubt, please contact anyone in Computer Training Services to discuss your concern.

If you are considering the GOOGLE CERTIFIED ACADEMY TRACK you should have some experience with the G-Suite for Education applications. This track does not cover details of every feature yet focuses on preparing you for your certification exam(s).
