5 FETC Takeaways

2/28/2013 12:00:00 AM

There’s an App for that! From the opening “shootout” to the closing session, thousands of apps were suggested—enough to fill every need and create some new needs. Very useful during the whole conference was FETC’s own app, containing session info and more.

Bring it! The rise of BYOD was very evident, beginning with a plethora of BYOD hands-on workshops and continuing with many concurrent sessions featuring successful BYOD implementations.

How Tweet it is! Social media was everywhere. Twitter feeds throughout the conference, especially during Keynote and featured sessions, brought the audience into the agenda. If you missed one of the major sessions, you could tune in to FETC’s own YouTube channel.

Learning everywhere! Great additions to the exhibit hall floor included poster sessions by educators and two Learning Lab theaters. Another Learning Lab outside the hall featured adaptive devices.

Can we talk? Collaboration and meeting new friends was facilitated with the “Bloggers Cafe,” an area of tables, chairs, and the all-important power supply, to recharge your mind and your device. In conjunction with FETC, there were presentations by the Florida Distance Learning Association and the 2013 Learning Environments Conference.
