The EdTech Center’s Guide to COABE 2019


So many presentations, so little time! To help ease your ‘presentation overload’, we created this curated list of sessions focused on edtech, digital literacy and online learning. Check out the master list for more details on each session in the table below. We know that COABE can be an overwhelming experience with countless of options, so we narrowed down the selection to our top 15! Did we miss an edtech session you think we should add to our list? Let us know by hitting reply or tweeting to us @WorldEdUS

If you have some free time, come stop by our booth at 804 between Natgeo and Townsend Press. We can’t wait to see you at COABE!
