A 6 hour workshop titled GPS Technology and Geocaching for Intermediate Students will be held on Sunday of the TIES 2007 Education Technology Conference. I am signed up for all for days of this conference as I usually do for my job, but this year I get a bonus of geocaching for 3 to 6 hours of the conference. The conference on technology in education and may be of interest to some. The website for this conference is below.
