NEW!!! (un) Sessions

No presenters, no PowerPoints. (Un)Sessions are more social, more hands-on and a lot less formal than regular conference session, putting all attendees in the center of learning. Choose from one of seven participant-facilitated (meaning that the people who attend will generate the content of the session) session around the seven strands of the conference. Come to share, learn and connect with other teachers.


NEW!!! Power-Share Sessions

Get 12 ideas in one hour during fast-paced Power Share sessions that allow multiple participants to share technology ideas (links, apps, sites, resources) in brief five-minute show & tell mini-sessions. Get the latest and be inspired to bring more technology into your classroom. All conference attendees are invited to present. Simply sign-up for one of the slots at the registration desk.
