Annual Meeting in Denver Technology Sessions Update

I've updated the listing of technology sessions at the Denver Annual NCTM meeting including more details about the sessions from the speakers who have responded to my request. If you are a speaker on a technology theme and your session is not listed please let me know ( and I will include your session. Also if you wish to have more detail than what is listed please send me a photo and additional information about your session. We know that you submitted your proposal to speak last May and you may want your potential attendees to know more about you and your presentation. I'll be continuing to update this listing (here is the link again) right through the conference. So its never to late to do so.

I will be attending the conference though this year CLIME will not be exhibiting so I'll be free to roam around the conference and report back to you about the sessions and exhibits that I found interesting.

I hope to see you there.
