Erin Wilkey Oh | June 8, 2018

From June 24 to 27, thousands of techy educators will convene in the Windy City to share, connect, discuss, and learn about all topics related to technology in education. The Common Sense Education team will be among them, presenting and participating in a range of events throughout the week.

Sneak Peeks and Big Prizes

If you're able to be at the conference in person, be sure to stop by our booth, #782, for a chance to win a day of in-person digital citizenship training from Common Sense, valued at $3,000. You'll also get to see a sneak peek of exciting new digital citizenship resources coming for back to school 2018!
