Getting Ready for the Texas Google Summit

The Techs4Tex team spent a fast-paced and exciting day today in Brenham, TX preparing for the upcoming Texas Google Summit coming up May 17, 2104.

We began by laying out the schedule (about 20 concurrent sessions).

Below is Brenham ISD Tech Director Kim Strauss breaking rules by drawing on the table with a dry erase marker, which amazed us all . . .


Also pictured Shepherd ISD's Tech Diva Pam Cadwalder, Brenham ISD Instructional Technology Specialist Troy Kuhn, Coldspring-Oakhurst Consolidated ISD's awesome ELA specialist Laura Kile. There were also a bunch of other awesome people present, just so you know.

We emailed with our keynote speaker Kyle Pace (so excited to have him visit us in TX), and more of our big stars including Shelly Terrell and Tim Chase. We also added a few of these guys who are kind of a big deal to our Lead Learners page, but there are so many amazing presenters sharing their knowledge it was hard to know where to stop.

One of the sessions I'm most excited about is going to be provided by teacher extraordinaire Linda Yollis and her 3rd grade students, literally world famous for their classroom blog.

Also, did you know that TCEA Teacher of the year and White House Champion of Change Tech Ninja Todd Nesloney is going to be presenting? That's right. You sure don't want to miss his and fellow Tech Ninja Stacey Huffine's sessions!


At the end of the day, we visited the beautiful Brenham High School. Check out the amazing auditorium . . .


We're so excited for you to be our guests at this event. We want you to have a great time, to learn a ton, and to feel welcome in the spaces we are working to create for you. We sure hope to see you there!
