eTech Ohio Conference Giveaway Winners

Jamie Hardin presents “Prezi, Glogster and Jing Oh My!”

eTech Ohio’s  “Next Generation Innovation” conference last week at the Greater Columbus Convention Center was a fabulous event!  Estimates are that between 3-4 thousand educators attended the popular conference.  Hundreds had a chance to learn more about Glogster EDU in informative sessions, and booth 838 was buzzing with veteran Gloggers and newbies alike. Jen and I kept  busy answering questions, sharing Glogster EDU success stories, passing out mints, and keeping interested educators from “borrowing” the Glog posters we had in the booth ;).

Booth 838 in all its glory.

Columbus did a great job hosting the event for educators from all over the US, and the locals displayed their hospitality throughout the city. (Shout-out to Shuttle Dave at the Sheraton! -Jen)

We collected hundred of entries for the Teacher Premium and School Premium License raffle during Glogster EDU sessions and in the booth.  We are announcing the winners here first! So without further ado…
