The TICL Planning Committee is recruiting teachers willing to share a successful technology-infused project in an informal manner with other TICL attendees. During the last hour of lunch on Tuesday, individual tables will be available for you to show posters, handouts and/or sample student work. No formal presentation is needed, just the desire to share with others. As attendees finish with lunch, they will be free to move from table to table to hear about the projects. Help us further the conversations at TICL 2014. Please register to present a poster session here!
