This conference is open to all educators in South Carolina.
Select one, two or three days and attend up to 4 sessions per day.
Each day is $20 and runs 8:30 to 3:30.
The workshop will be held at ETV, 1041 George Rogers Blvd, Columbia, SC 29201. Directions.
Schedule for each day will be posted soon.
Registration is OPEN. Complete a registration for each day you wish to attend. (Not individual sessions.) IF the day is full, just check back a few weeks before since we will have a few cancellations. We are not able to keep a waiting list.
After each day is posted, make a note of your selections for 1st, 2nd and 3rd choices for each session time. Then come early and go to your first room. If that one is full, you will have to go to your second or third choice. We will NOT be able to overfill rooms-fire marshall's orders. There will be PLENTY offered so you WILL be able to find GREAT sessions to attend.

Comments from Previous Workshops
“(Your favorite part?) Hands on and Handouts. This was a great workshop! I feel I can go back to my school and better use the technology we have.” (Lou Thomas, Pine Tree Hill Elementary, Kershaw)
“Too Short. More. More. (Your favorite part?) Time to explore! Enjoyed the day but I need/want MORE. Extremely organized. Highly professional. Knowledgeable and friendly staff. Smiley Day! Thanks!” (Marilyn Lambright, Ruffin Middle, Colleton)
Absolutely wonderful! I’m so glad I came! Will return for Streamline class if offered! (Julie Haltiwanger, Little Mountain, Newberry)
Certificate of Completion: You may request a certificate at the end of your last day showing the "seat hours" you attended. Each session is worth 45 minutes or 1.5 hours of seat time plus 45 minutes for lunch presentations which is up to 6 hours/day. This is NOT to be mistaken for recertification hours. (See that option below.) YOU need to ask YOUR district if they will accept these "seat" hours as PD/Staff Development hours/credit. Individual districts will determine if and how they count the hours.
Recertification Course Information
Recertification: 1 Hour or 20 Renewal Credits through ETV with SDOE providing the credits.
You must attend 2 days (add $35) or 3 days (add $15) and complete lesson plans and discussons based on the workshops your attend. Find out more here.
Dates: July 29 – September 26 (6 weeks)
Work in addition to the “seat hours” at the workshop is required.
