Due to low enrollment, the Learning on the Lakeshore Preconference Workshops scheduled for Tuesday, August 15, 2017 are cancelled. We apologize if the cancellation has caused you any inconvenience. The 1/2 day workshops were offered to meet requests for longer, hands-on sessions which go deeper into a topic. Note: presenters at the LOTL Conference have been encouraged to include hands-on practice in their 60 minute breakout sessions as appropriate. We look forward to seeing you on August 16, 2017 LOTL Conference at Mona Shores High School.

Fear, Failure, and Fun in Education
