WEMTA Conference 2015
The momentum continues to build for the 2015 WEMTA Conference. Starting Sunday, March 22, and continuing through Tuesday, March 24, the Kalahari Resort in Wisconsin Dells will be the place to be for making, shaking, and moving. Featured speakers  represent the diversity of the membership in WEMTA (Wisconsin Educational Media & Technology Association). Sessions range from library makerspaces to digital differentiation to literacy and beyond. This conference is a showcase of the makers, shakers, and movers from within and beyond the borders of Wisconsin.

You will not only hear great stories about what's happening in our schools but we also invite you to tell your stories.  What are you doing in your libraries, classrooms, districts, schools, virtually that is improving student access to learning opportunities and supporting innovative instruction? Watch for more information about the share your story opportunity at the conference. The Ebony room at the Kalahari will be available on Monday for you to share and have your stories recorded by a very congenial videographer from the Department of Public Instruction. We will provide the comfortable setting, focus questions and editing rights so  the incredible work you are doing to help learners of all ages can be showcased. We thank WEMTA for collaborating on this celebration of your work. Your stories, large and small need to be shared. We hope to see and hear you at WEMTA 15!
