Are you ready for Saturday? We are getting everything ready here at South Valley Jr High School for a great day of networking, learning and sharing with educational technology. Here is an update on Tech or Treat:

  • Currently there are over 50 teachers registered to take part in Tech or Treat - about 15 from the Liberty School District and the rest from schools throughout Kansas and Missouri - we think it will be a great group of people with a ton of great ideas.

  • Are people really wearing costumes? Yes, I know for sure that the presenters for the sessions on blogging, podcasting and United Streaming will be in costume. You don't have to come in costume and I know many of you are probably thinking no way but Discovery Education will have prizes for scariest, most original and most historic. If you have ever done anything with Discovery Education you know that they can get a little crazy!

  • Food - We have Starbucks providing the breakfast with coffee and pastries. Lunch will be provided a local Italian place in Liberty - Cupini's that just opened on the historic Liberty town square. It should be very good, and of course it is all free!

  • We will have 10 of our very own South Valley Junior High students providing help throughout the day and they will also be in costume to add to the "Tech or Treat" theme.

  • Brad Founatain of Discovery Education is flying in to give the lunch keynote address and Steve Dembo of Discovery Education will be giving a webinar to start off the day.

If you know of anyone else that would like to join us please ask them to sign up by sending an e-mail with their name and school to We are trying to finalize some of the food orders and want to make sure we have enough for everyone.

We are looking forward to meeting you. Check out this link if you would like a map to locate South Valley Jr High School in Liberty.

Thank you for a wonderful workshop. Unfortunately I had to leave early and was wondering if any resources or links to similar workshops were going to be posted.

Thank you again!
