TI cancels teaching-with-tech confab, cites coronavirus fear
DALLAS (AP) - Texas Instruments has canceled its March 13-15 Teachers Teaching with Technology International Conference because of coronavirus concerns. The annual conference draws teachers from across the nation who learn how to use education technology in the classroom. Dallas-based TI had set aside 2,500 room nights at a downtown convention hotel for the event. TI spokeswoman Ellen Fishpaw tells The Dallas Morning News that the company began hearing from concerned educators over the last few weeks and made the decision “out of an abundance of caution.” She said TI is “currently exploring other ways to engage with educators outside the conference.”
