This Is The Email You’ve Been Waiting For!

An update from this Texas-based conference that has traditionally been quite K-12 distance, online, and/or blended learning friendly.

Earlybird Registration and
Call For Proposals are now Open!

Earlybird registration and call for proposals are now open for the 2020 TxDLA Annual Conference: Through the Looking Glass, A Wonderland of Innovation.
Come be a part of the premiere distance learning conference in the state of Texas this spring, March 22-25 in Fort Worth, Texas.

In a world where students and faculty are excited about technology, we will travel down a path of discovering a whole new world of creative advancements in technology. Students are using technology in every aspect of their lives and faculty are developing new and innovative methods to engage their students, so we want to push the boundaries and explore new ways to engage students using technology.

We will focus on viewing innovation through the lens of the student, faculty, and partnerships. We want to encourage faculty by demonstrating the possibilities of technological advancement. We want to partner with corporations, government, non-profits, and museums to give glimpses into what innovation they are discovering. And, we want to assist our K-12 partners with innovative technology resources as they are striving for excellence in supporting their constituents.

We live in a wonderland where technology and innovation are key – they take our classrooms to a new level for students as they prepare for jobs that don’t even exist yet. Join us in exploring new technology and changing education for the better.

Have an innovative idea or presentation to share? Call for Proposals is open now!

There’s Love (And Learning) In The Air

Information on another up-coming conference.

2019 TxDLA Annual Conference
March 25-28, 2019
Moody Gardens Hotel
Galveston, Texas
See the agenda >>

Considering professional development opportunities? You’ll find them — and more — at the 2019 TxDLA Annual Conference. We know you’re in it for the love of learning, but here are a few additional compelling reasons to join us.

Five great reasons to attend:

1. “There are no strangers here. Only friends you haven’t met yet.”

When William Butler Yeats said it, he wasn’t talking about the TxDLA Conference— though he could have been. Whether you attend with a crew or on your own, you’ll have the opportunity to network with 400 like-minded individuals keen on driving education forward in new, innovative ways.

2. No extra meal costs.

Your full registration fee covers all sessions (except for ONE breakout session on Monday, which is $99) — meals, the opening reception, jam session, exhibit hall access, and the Dinner Party by the Pool on Wednesday. Download this Justification Letter to help make your case to the boss.

3. Enjoy an inspiring tropical getaway.

Moody Gardens Hotel is a secret oasis in Galveston, Texas — the perfect setting to relax, put aside distractions, and be inspired by new ideas and ways of thinking.

4. Flexible pricing options.

In order to ensure you are getting the most value from attending the TxDLA Conference, we offer an array of registration options at different price points including a lower package for full-time graduate students as well as affordable one day options.

5. Bring out your inner self.

We have several opportunities for you to embrace your musical side (at the Bob Barnes Memorial Jam Session on Tuesday), your risk-taking side (playing casino at the Party by the Pool on Wednesday) or your nerdy side exploring all of the cool new products and innovations in the Exhibit Hall.
