You Don't Have To Take Our Word For It

One of the best conferences I’ve been to in some time. Well organized, friendly, supportive staff. Favorite part - having all the materials readily available through the [Schoology] class format. I could take notes and focus on the topic thoughtfully without worrying if I was going to get every slide or leave with a ream of paper!
As an administrator, I look for the big picture. I enjoyed the Schoology staff sessions.
[I most enjoyed] the focus on student learning and student engagement. The excitement of everyone involved was infectious (in a good way) and I came away pumped and ready to try new things and improve.
