Why Attend?

We often get asked how does attending MACUL benefit my classroom, school or district and we have an answer for that question:

Learning environments everywhere became tech dependent in the matter of days due to COVID-19, which means all educators, regardless of their role, need to be on top of their tech game. MACUL’s Annual Conference has been recognized for over 45 years as the premier opportunity to experience leading educational technology tools, strategies and content that impact the classroom and as a result participation in the conference can directly support student achievement. 

Don’t want to take our word for it?!  Here are some key impacts that your class, school or district can expect by your attendance at the MACUL Annual Conference:

  1. To Learn: With over 225+ sessions to attend there will be more than enough topics for you and your colleagues to target for your district’s specific needs – Ensuring lots of pedagogical based strategies to bring back to your classroom, school and district
  2. To Grow: Those same session opportunities will challenge your thinking, help you understand innovative resources and increase your teaching skills to be better for all students 
  3. To Connect: Learning best practices from thousands of other educators and building a PLN that you can tap anytime allows you to be a leader in your school and district
