April 3-4, 2017, Colegio Atid México City

Meeting Today’s PreK-12 Educational Technology Challenges

Atid´s first annual gathering of teachers, administrators, students and families who share an interest in an effective and efficient use of technology in education. Our goal is to share, expand and evolve in a global collaboration across tech and bilingual schools.

Colegio Atid, an Apple Distinguished Program, will host cutting edge EdTech speakers and world renowned vendors. The conferences will include presentations, workshops, student contests, and sessions that provide interaction and engagement.

We will have a special track for students who are able to explain their classroom learning process and demonstrate their results in a new learning environment using technology.
