Experiencing the Best of Edtech: My Time at TCEA and the Walking Food Tour with Nearpod

As a podcaster and educator, I recently attended the Texas Computer Education Association (TCEA) Conference in San Antonio, Texas. This annual event is one of the largest in the edtech industry and offers a great opportunity to learn about the latest trends and best practices in educational technology.

At TCEA, I had the opportunity to interview a wide range of participants, including edtech companies, speakers, and attendees. I was able to discuss various topics such as the integration of technology into teaching and learning, the use of technology in the classroom, and the future of edtech. Additionally, I presented a jam packed session showing educators different vocabulary retention strategies. The session participants were AWESOME!

One of the highlights of my TCEA experience was hosting a walking food tour with Nearpod. This tour was held on Sunday, January 29th, in downtown San Antonio and provided an opportunity for attendees to explore the city, meet new people, and enjoy some delicious food. It was a great way to kick off the TCEA Conference and break bread with like minded educators. 

Attending TCEA was a valuable experience for educators who are looking to stay up-to-date with the latest trends and best practices in educational technology. Whether you are an administrator, teacher, or tech expert, attending this conference can provide you with the knowledge, skills, and connections needed to effectively integrate technology into teaching and learning. So, if you have the opportunity, I highly recommend attending TCEA in person and taking part in fun activities like the Walking Food Tour with Nearpod. And trust me… there WILL be another Walking Food Tour at the next TCEA!
