Technology meets Education

Technology and Curriculum Conference of Aldine



About event

TCCA (in partnership with TCEA) is a grassroots organization started six years ago by a core group of Technology Specialists (now called Instructional Technology Specialists) in Aldine ISD. Through the six years of growth, the TCCA committee has been able to increase attendance at the conference every year by 500 or more. We have approached this growth with a simple creed, “Create It, and They Will Come”. TCCA is the only FREE technology and curriculum conference in the Houston area that takes place on a non-school day and is not just available for teachers but other staff as well such as administrators and librarians. The conference provides sessions in technology integration for teachers of all ages and subjects. This enables us to engage both teachers and administrators by providing a service that is in high demand. TCCA 2016 is again being held at B. O. Davis Sr. High School. This is a state of the art facility designed to hold upwards of 3000 people.

We made a name for ourselves more than 20 years ago offering the most comprehensive, high-performance network access and switching products. But if you still think “hardware” when you hear “Extreme,” it’s time to think again.
​Inspired by our vision of the network’s ability to drive the connections that, in turn, drive your business, we’ve layered on a set of software tools and operating systems to control policy from a single node to every device enterprise-wide. An analytics platform correlates usage with network performance and our intelligent control plane adapts in real-time. Finally, we’ve extended control beyond the physical network to your cloud infrastructure, optimizing your network and applications regardless of where they reside. Our evolution beyond hardware into one of the leading providers of softwaredriven networking solutions means that Extreme can deliver an IT infrastructure that’s fast, resilient and can tune itself to the demands of users, applications and security threats — from wired to wireless, desktop to datacenter.

ANGELA MAIERS

Keynote

My twenty five years as an educator and my passionate pursuit of literacy and learning have given me a wonderful variety of experiences, including classroom and university teaching, instructional coaching, research, writing, publishing, corporate training, and launching a global movement. In today's world, there are no limits for learners with passion, foresight, and a desire to grow. ​As a young teacher, Angela Maiers had an epiphany: people need to matter. They need to be noticed, valued, and honored. Significance is even more important than success. Ever since, the You Matter message has been changing hearts, minds, and lives.
