Now that we’ve turned the corner into 2018, the Bookshare team is excited to hit the road and participate in two upcoming conferences. If you plan to attend, be sure to find us and network, learn, and share.
Future of Education Technology Conference (FETC)
January 23-26 in Orlando
FETC brings together education leaders and technology experts to exchange techniques and strategies for teaching and learning success. FETC provides educators and administrators the opportunity to explore the integration of technology across the curriculum — from pre-K through 12 — through hands-on exposure to the latest hardware, software and successful strategies.
Special offer: Save an extra 10% on attendance or get a free expo-only pass. Visit us in booth #1055 to learn how Bookshare can help students with reading challenges.

I’m involved in the annual professional development conference for the Massachusetts Association for Adult Education, NETWORK 2018 on April 6, 2018. We’ve had over 500 attendees at each of our last three conferences. Would you be interested in exhibiting or doing a presentation?
