While winter weather was approaching Indian Creek School this week, faculty members Ms. Sarah Allen '01 and Mr. Bear traveled to Orlando, Florida, to share their expertise through several presentations at the Future of Education Technology Conference (FETC). The FETC conference brings together educators from around the world to learn from industry experts around topics of educational technology.
