All the fantabulous happenings on at #NCETA11 — Wake Forest University

This year’s conference theme, Finding Common Ground, asked teachers to think about the places where we share and “empower” each other to “overcome social and bureaucratic obstacles” in teaching “language, literacy, and learning.” *

*quotes from NCETA program, pg2

Let’s incorporate technology throughout — creating connections and shared spaces to learn from each other.
