Attendees can learn about the latest apps for education, integration of iPads into interactive classrooms, photo scavenger hunts in the classroom, flipped classrooms and many other ideas for best using technology to teach.

Melissa Shields, director of technology, advanced placement and distance learning for the Etowah County School System in Gadsden, Ala., will be the keynote speaker for the event. The theme for ATA 2013 is ENGAGE: Cultivating 21st Century Leaders.
