Spring MACE 2015
A Conference for Educators by Educators
The Mid-America Association for Computers in Education will be hosting their annual education technology conference in Manhattan. This is a wonderful learning and networking opportunity for educators, and a great low-cost option for school districts to support technological staff development.
MACE has been providing educators with technology conferences since 1982.
This year will be conference number 60!
