The Texas Computer Education Association’s (TCEA)  Podstock Southwest technology conference is rapidly becoming the premier educational technology conference in West Texas.  Held every August, Podstock SW  draws hundreds of educators from nearly every school district in far west Texas.  If you did not have the opportunity to attend Podstock SW last year, you are in for a treat.
