THE ESSENTIAL E'S
In the Essential E's of Streaming we move beyond the gadgets to delve into what makes a digital experience powerful and impactful. You'll learn the secret sauce to the success of any broadcast or multicast.
With amazing educational sites, apps, and tools available online it isn't surprising that more and more people are finding great learning and inspiration outside of the traditional classroom.

In this workshop we will explore the latest in educational technology and how to best use these tools both in and outside of the classroom.
