The Annual MassTEC Conference will be held:
Friday, October 14, 2011 at Fitchburg State University.
The theme of the conference is sTEmWe Make the Connection.
One item we receive feedback on after every conference is the need for teacher led workshops. Many teachers are looking for ideas and activities to take back to their classrooms. So this year we are looking for additional teachers who will be willing to offer workshops on what they do in the classroom.
If you do offer a workshop you will be eligible for Professional Development Points (PDPs) [and a free lunch!]
Follow this link to a workshop application. Please fill it out and send it in.
We really want Science and Math teachers, elementary teachers as well as Administrators and School Counselors to come and share their understanding of STEM and see how Technology/Engineering Education can improve your students' understanding of key concepts and real life applications.
[Technology/Engineering Education and] Technology Education has progressed from Industrial Arts, which was focused on tool and machine skills and craftsmanship, to that of teaching all students engineering habits of mind.
This includes teaching students the knowledge, skills, and dispositions necessary to understand and apply engineering concepts, including the engineering design process, systems, and the impact of technology on society.
