What to Expect at the JTC Symposium
The committee has completed nearly all the planning for the event. Dana DiTomaso will be the keynote speaker. Twelve compelling breakout sessions are in the final stages of development. You may want to bring at least one colleague in order to fully cover the information available for the day.
Keynote Speaker: Dana DiTomaso
Congratulations Class of 2025!
Preeparing students for the challenges of 2025 is more than just making sure that everyone takes at least one how-to-code class. Our keynote speaker, Dana DiTomaso, will address the changing technology landscape and what that means for the lessons we teach our students now.
Dana is President & Partner at Kick Point, where she applies marketing into strategies to grow clients' businesses, in particular to ensure that digital and traditional play well together. With her deep experience in digital, Dana can separate real solutions from wastes of time (and budget).
In her spare time, Dana is the past-president of the Advertising Club of Edmonton and is the weekly technology columnist on CBC Edmonton AM. She also enjoys drinking fancy beer and yelling at football players.
