What makes a good proposal?
We’re looking for presentations that:
Take advantage of student-centered pedagogy. Show how educators can individualize learning by differentiating instruction and introducing real-world problem solving. Support your ideas with the latest scientific research on how students learn.
Enhance educators’ knowledge. Our goal is to increase both the technical knowledge and the pedagogical content knowledge of educators and teacher candidates.
Help develop leadership skills. Explore ways to encourage and empower educators and students to lead.
Advance digital age learning. Delve into systems, models, practices and strategies for creating meaningful digital age learning experiences, both virtual and face-to-face.
Address the ISTE Standards. How does your proposal support the ISTE Standards? Provide a model for achieving standards-aligned objectives.
Incorporate technical content. Our conference covers technical content appropriate for all levels of expertise, from beginner to advanced.
Encourage audience participation. Think beyond the lecture and devise new ways to engage your audience. Our session formats include interactive lectures, BYODs, snapshots, roundtables, open-area poster sessions and more. Read about session formats and focus areas here.
