The most important benefit of attending a conference

I am heading over to the Texas Computer Educators Association conference (#TCEA15  #learnanywhere) this morning.  There are some potentially excellent sessions on the implementation and usage of technology and a walk through a monstrous TECH Expo on my agenda for today.

Despite all of those learning opportunities, the most important benefit for me in attending today will be the connections I will make with the many visionary and like-minded educators also in attendance.

This chance to increase and strengthen my Personal Learning Network through face-to-face meetings would be reason enough to attend TCEA even without the many great learning offerings.

Even at this incredible technology conference, it is still always about the people.
