Powerful, Accessible Learning

Session formats allow presenters and participants to interact and share ideas in one of six ways designed to create active useful learning experiences.

Thought Leaders


Sessions are 60 or 90 minutes and consist of a lecture-style presentation, with time for interaction between attendees and presenters. Presenters are encouraged to share proven strategies for successful curriculum integration from personal experience and research projects related to technology-based instruction. All rooms are set up theater-style unless special provisions have been requested. Presenters must bring their own devices for presentation.

Panel Discussion


In this type of presentation, a panel, consisting of 3–5 people (including the submitting moderator), presents their views on a common theme, issue, or question, and then discusses them with the audience.

Hands-on Experience


Hands-on experiences are intended to provide an in-depth review of the content being delivered and help participants discover more of a topic than a standard convention presentation. These workshop-style experiences may be content- or platform-focused, and may not require specific devices to participate.

Convention Exhibitor Showcase Presentations


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.

Robert Knight Exhibit Hall


At the exhibit hall, you can discover the best of the best in education, technology, and innovative learning. For more information on the exhibit hall, including a list of participating vendors, click here.

Poster Sessions


This open, booth-like environment encourages meaningful conversations regarding ideas, implementation, tools, and projects that attendees can immediately incorporate in their classroom, campus, or district. Sessions are grouped around a common theme, such as STEM, leadership, or coding.
