About the Session Formats

Presentation Sessions
Presentation sessions are 50 minutes or 90 minutes in length and may be led by experts in technology and/or pedagogy or a group of educators sharing tools and best practices as they have implemented them. Presenters will share proven strategies for successful curriculum integration from personal experience and research projects related to technology-based instruction.
Hands-on Workshops
In workshops, the emphasis is on hands-on technology. Workshops are designed to be an interactive and hands-on learning experience and are 90 minutes, 3 hours, or 6 hours in length.

Each workshop will have a limited enrollment to allow active attendee participation. PC Workshops will have PC computers available for each participant with the necessary software already installed. BYOD workshops require the use of your personal device. The description will indicate which devices are compatible for the workshop.

Panel Presentations
A panel of educators and ed tech enthusiasts will present their views on a common theme, issue, or question and then discuss them with the audience. Panel presentations provide an opportunity to hear about specific topics presented by several knowledgeable facilitators and will help you further understand and evaluate the topics being discussed. Panels are 50 minutes or 90 minutes in length.
Exhibitor Showcase Sessions
These 50-minute sessions are presented by exhibiting companies to further explore the products and services available on the show floor in an in-depth, informative, and non-sales atmosphere.
Poster Sessions
You will have the opportunity to explore a variety of topics in a multi-booth environment where you can engage with presenters one-on-one or in small groups. This kind of learning environment encourages meaningful conversations regarding your ideas, implementation, tools, and projects that you can immediately incorporate in your classroom, campus, or district. Sessions are grouped each time period around a common theme such as STEM, leadership, or coding.
Solution Circles
Build and expand your learning networks with peers taking on similar initiatives. In these 50-minute facilitated, round-table conversations we will discuss common problems, explore solutions, and share resources. Expand your network and continue working together long after you depart the convention.
