TCEA + IDEAcon

Virtual Conference  |  Feb 1-24

Teachers: Grades 6–12

Teaching middle and high school students is a wonderful, unique thing. It’s also incredibly difficult. It means constantly trying to keep them engaged and motivated. That’s why we created the TCEA Convention & Exposition. We’ve gathered practical ways to create a fully engaged classroom, foster curiosity, and shape smart, responsible adults. Bring back solutions designed to help you captivate your students while creating an environment that nurtures their intellectual and social development.

“The many opportunities for teachers to use innovative methods of teaching in the classroom was simply amazing.”

Teaching middle and high school students means keeping them engaged and motivated. It’s why we have gathered an abundance of practical ways to create a fully engaged classroom, foster curiosity, and shape smart, responsible adults. Bring back solutions designed to help you captivate your students while creating an environment that nurtures their intellectual and social development.

What does your ticket to the TCEA Convention & Exposition get you?

Get time back. Your time is invaluable. Why not knock out all of your required CPE hours at once? With over 500 events and experiences, there are over 40 live-event credit hours and over 350 self-paced credits available on-demand for 30 days after the live event! 

Bring back strategies that really work. Gather solutions designed to help you captivate your students while creating an environment that nurtures their intellectual and social development.

Improve student outcomes. Explore strategies and techniques that will really work in your classroom. Take the guesswork out of the equation by learning from your peers what has been successful and what hasn’t.

Develop grading methods that help you save time. Explore techniques to help you save time and discover how to incorporate them. 

Boost communication between parents. Learn how to collaborate and communicate to create change in student’s progress.

Learn your way. We know how busy you are. It’s why we created interactive and on-demand sessions that allow you to learn at your own pace. You can embrace a full learning experience (and in your PJs — we won’t judge) through March 5. 

Incorporate SEL into your classroom. Discover simple ways to to support your student’s social-emotional growth.

Access the latest in ed tech. You’ll be able to get the most up-to-date solutions from industry experts and vendors in our robust exhibit hall.
