Denton Independent School District’s annual Lone Star TIA conference will take place Tuesday, July 19, and Wednesday, July 20, providing area educators and community members with sessions about how to use technology for education.

Lone Star TIA serves as a training ground for educators to learn about technology trends and how they can be used in the classroom. Sessions provided at TIA include both lecture-style courses to hands-on presentations. Additionally, vendors will provide demonstrations of educational technology products and services between and during sessions.

This year’s conference, which again takes place at Ryan High School, located at 5101 E. McKinney St. in Denton, features leading educator George Couros and Google education evangelist executive Jaime Casap as keynote speakers. Mr. Couros is known for his innovative educational leadership using technology, while Mr. Cassap is known for championing educational initiatives and speaking at a variety of tech-focused events, such as the White House’s “Beating the Odds” summit.
