Future in Focus: GaETC 2020

The theme for the 2020 Georgia Educational Technology Conference is “Future in Focus.” This is the perfect time to adopt a theme connected to vision.

As the steering committee at GaETC continually strives to provide content that feeds and nurtures our attendees’ interest in educational technology, this year we are putting an emphasis on what the students of today need in order to be prepared for their future beyond school. What we know for sure is that we cannot teach our students the technology skills they will need in 20, 30 or 50 years. No one knows what technology will look like then! So we must use the digital tools we have to empower students to be life-long learners, to be curious about the world in which they live, and to analyze the myriad of information coming at them to make the best decisions for themselves and others.
