2016 ICE Conference Breakout Sessions - Highlights From My PLN

Last week, I put together a list of some great workshops being facilitated by members of my PLN at this year's Illinois Computer Educators Conference. This is a great conference that connects #EdTech to teaching and learning. K-12 Educators of all subject areas will find a rich collection of sessions waiting for them.

Today I would like to share some of the Breakout Sessions on Thursday and Friday that are being facilitated by my PLN. This is by no means a complete list and there are many other excellent breakout sessions.
