About The Event

Need help with remote teaching? Have you heard of PicCollage but didn’t realize all of its possibilities? Spend the morning with Hello Literacy’s Jen Jones (@hellojenjones)  and app guru Kami Butterfield  (@teachingwithappitude) for some PAPERLESS PD! Spend the afternoon with Jen & Meredith (@creativitytothecore) while we bring you all Guided Reading solutions inside Google Meet. Many teachers are required to use Google Classroom only, so this session addresses how to teach remotely, specifically teaching reading, using Google Meet and Jamboard. Meredith taught whole group and small group Kindergarten in the spring via Google Meet and is sharing all her tips and strategies with you. 

Come to HelloTechCon to spark and ignite a passion for teaching with the use of technology and a sense of urgency. Jen, Kami  and Meredith speak with authenticity and passion for students and the future of the classroom. Throughout the day, Jen, Kami & Meredith will present a variety of digital literacy strategies that are simple and free to implement.
