Ditch That Textbook Digital Summit - December- 14-22

by Julie Knernschield | Dec 10, 2018

There are nine video presentations from awesome presenters on topics related to tech and solid teaching and learning, including a video from St. Louis' own Manuel Herrera.

HOW IT WORKS: New presentations are released every day from Dec. 14-22. They remain available until Dec. 31 so you can re-watch or catch up on any you’ve missed. They’re pre-recorded, so you can watch them whenever you want until Dec. 31. You also get access to over 20 videos from the previous Ditch Summits during that time. After that, the summit ends and the videos are unavailable to watch anymore.

Learn more about the conference in this video interview I recorded with the founder of the summit, Matt Miller, author of Ditch that Textbook. https://youtu.be/TWstHcYkF-k
