photoThe Tech Savvy Teachers have touched down in Seattle and are ready for another great NCCE conference!  As with every conference there are some actions you can take as an attendee to maximize the experience for yourself and everyone attending.  First off, wireless:
Password: NCCE14Fans! 
The technical staff at NCCE does an outstanding job of providing wireless coverage at the conference.  With that said, we need your help to make sure everyone can have the wireless access they need.  One of the best things you can do is make sure you only have one device connected to the conference wireless at a time.  Connecting your phone and then putting it into your pocket wastes access and holds a wireless spot that someone else could be using.  Some other reminders:
·       DO NOT create any MiFi or personal hotspots
·       Personal hotspots will be turned off
·       Streaming will be monitored and limited
Remember the 5 Minute Rule for all workshops:
In order to fairly accommodate all hands-on workshop participants, the five-minute rule will apply.  Those that have re-registered for a hands-on workshop must arrive at least 5 minutes prior to the start of the workshop. If not, the seat will be opened to attendees.  Those who did not pre-register for a workshops are encouraged to participate in a workshop where space is available.
If you are going to be using a Chromebook lab or participating in any Google workshops or sessions:
If you are going to be attending a session/workshop in the Chromebook lab, be sure you have a Google account created PRIOR to the conference.
