2017 JACKSONVILLE. AECT Jacksonville 2017 was a resounding success! Nearly one thousand people registered for the convention, travelling from many states and countries to share the newest ideas in our field. Our program innovations like the High Impact Talks, AECT Listens and Learns PD event with Duval County Teachers (for nearly 100) were very successful. A revamped Emerging Technology Showcase and First Timers events added to the positive excitement that many registrants reported from starting each day with excellent keynotes. We are looking forward to Kansas City in 2018.
