When educators come together, great things happen.

ATLiveEdu, produced by the staff at Kurzweil Education, is an assistive technology event aimed at doing just that—bringing educators together to compare notes and learn from each other. You'll hear from colleagues in your field who are using a variety of approaches and technologies to enhance learning for their students. Each of you will leave with practical knowledge that can be applied to the classroom the next day.
