One of our favorite times of the year has arrived – MACUL! MACUL is our chance to interact face-to-face with our alumni, students and friends here in Michigan. This year’s conference (held March 7-9 in Grand Rapids) is full of incredible opportunities and it’s hard to express how excited we are to see everyone.
Our “MACUL headquarters” is in the exhibit hall, booth #112. We have a lot of fun in store for this year:
We are always incredibly proud of our students, alumni and faculty who present at MACUL. Here is the latest list of people associated with MAET who are presenting at MACUL 12 –
The REAL Sparty is getting ready for March Madness, but, we have a stand in – come get your picture with our Sparty and learn how we hacked a semi-instant DIY photobooth.
We’re very excited this year to announce we’ll be running a mini TeachMeet on Thursday March 8th from 11am-1pm.  A TeachMeet is a fast paced open format where you can pop in and share something new, something old, or be inspired by your peers. We will have a MediaScape set up and you can stop by, plug in any device and share!  We already have sessions lined up on how educators are using Pinterest, ifttt, tagxedo & more. Sign up to share at our TeachMeet by visiting –
Finally, we’ll be giving away a pair of tickets to see Sir Ken Robinson at MSU on Wednesday, March 21 at 7:30pm.  To enter, simply come to our MACUL booth, fill out our brief survey and you’re entered to win! We’ll be using a random number picker to choose the winner at noon on Friday, March 9th (you do not need to be present at the booth to win.)
SO be sure to stop by booth #112, say hi to Jodi Spicer & the rest of TEAM MAET!
