Super Sunday Session

Speed Geeking

Sunday, November 12
9:15 AM - 10:15 AM
Location: 213 D

Come get your geek on! Speed Geeking, a perennial favorite among techie-minded NAGC conference goers, is a lively session in which members of the network pitch their favorite technology tools in rapid succession. This year the geeks have been given the challenge of presenting just one tool or resource--their absolute favorite at this point in time--and they will have just three minutes to tell you about it before being buzzed off the stage. Oohs and aahs from the crowd are encouraged, and walk-on geeks are welcome! Whether you are a novice or experienced user of educational technology, you can be sure that you will leave with at least one new idea, courtesy of your geeky colleagues from the Computers and Technology Network.
