Curriculum Technology Demos at AEA - October 7
Educators encouraged to attend.
On Tuesday, October 7th five products that support the curriculum will be demonstrated at
Keystone AEA in Elkader by company sales staff. Each will present in a large group setting at a
designated time, and will be set up all day from 9;00 to 3:30 to exhibit their product, do mini-
presentations, answer questions, and provide information
The AEAs have negotiated discounted pricing for all these products, with savings ranging from
10% to over 50%. Now is a good time to investigate these products to see what they can do for
student achievement, and to decide whether your school wants to invest in any of them.
All teachers and administrators are invited and encouraged to come that day to see these
products. Feel free to come for the full day, or for a portion of the day, whatever your schedule
allows. Please register if you will be joining us for lunch (see below).
