Did you know, beginning the week of February 1st, educators from across the state of Texas and across the country, will gather in Austin to share their best and brightest ideas for educational technology at a little known conference called TCEA (Texas Computer Education Association).
You do not want to miss the opportunity to learn, even from the comfort of your own home!

And, join the conversation. You have a story to share and a captive audience! Share!
What a great turnout we've had in our blogging challenge so far! The DLC team has enjoyed engaging in meaningful digital discussions with you as you have made important decisions about your blogging platform, audience and purpose.
Of the three things we have asked you to consider - platform, audience and purpose...which is most important? How do they all relate and work together to create a blog that is meaningful?
Many of you who are participating in this challenge have expressed that your blog will be a location for personal reflection or serve to as a window to provide a glimpse into your classroom.
Consider these questions as you take the next steps in your blogging journey:
1. How often will you blog?
2. How will personal reflection lead to professional growth?
3. Will you establish a standard for blogging, answering the question "is this blog worthy?"
4. How will you advertise your blog?
As a reminder, please be aware that in order to receive flex credit for module 1 in Eduphoria -- you must submit the assignment affiliated with it.
