Attendees came from across North America and as far away as New Zealand. The conference featured over 50 content-based sessions. In addition to the content sessions, participants who were interested in learning how to use GeoGebra could have attended a 2-day “Newbie” workshop. Participants could also have attended a day-long strand on Digital Ethics, featuring sessions on privacy rights, ethics of digital games, and other digital issues.

The conference was opened by Keynote speaker John Golden from Grand Valley State University. Slides from John’s presentation – Teaching for Creativity – can be downloaded at http://bit.ly/goldenggb13. You can follow John on Twitter @mathhombre.
