Now that the 2007-2008 school year is in full swing, we want to encourage TIE Network members to attend at least one regional event between now and the end of December 2007. These regional get-togethers are a wonderful way to network with members who are outside of your district while also learning new technology skills for your classroom, district or region.
If you haven't joined the growing TIE Network, then now is the time! The GPB Education Technology in Education Network (TIE Network) has plenty of events planned for fall and winter! If you are already a TIE Member, then get signed-up and be prepared to mingle with your fellow TIE members!
