Teachers leveraging Technology.”
At first glance I was surprised there were only 5 sessions, but what a treat these sessions appear to be! I plan to attend 4 of them skipping only Karim’s because that happens at the same time as my session. They all take place on Friday. Here’s a rundown of the sessions.

I’m not exactly sure why mine was left off the list since I think leveraging (using something to maximum advantage) technology is a big part of what Math 2.0 is all about.
Each of the 5 sessions focuses on themes that are significant in a Math 2.0 classroom environment: Social media, video games, real world applications and blogging as a significant new form of professional development.
Of the 653 descriptions of sessions that I read (with this vision of Math 2.0 on my mind) 161 sessions have a technology theme. That’s almost 21% which is down from a high of 38% at the Philly Annual Meeting in 2012 and 28% in Denver in 2013.
I’ve highlighted 16 that are on my "plan to attend" list. (This list includes my session #398 on Math 2.0 at the Hilton at 11am.)
If you would like to have your session highlighted let me know. I can also add a photo and additional links to your listing.
It’s been a long time since you submitted your proposal and you might want me to add some updates to your session listing on the CLIME conference technology site. Send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org with the updates (your photo, links, etc.) and I will immediately post them to the website.
