Welcome to the Area 7 Tech Conference site.

Here you will find all the latest updates, news, presenter information, registration links, presenter resources, sponsor links, and more. The pages are listed in the left hand column for easy navigation. You can also subscribe by email to receive updates.

We will have three strands running in our presentation schedule: administrative, curriculum, and network. We hope this will provide plenty of training opportunities for everyone. Stay tuned as we add information about those who have committed to be presenters in each of those strands.

For those who blog or use Flickr, our conference tags are: tatc09 and tatc2009 TCEA will be watching the Flickr tag search to find photos for the next TechEdge.

Our keynote speakers this year are Dean Shareski and Alec Couros. There is so much I can say about these two educators, but let me just let their opening slide from their presentation speak for them:
