Preference of presenters will be given to those submitting proposals related to the program theme, Motivate, Engage, Transform, Connect or one of the program strands (see previous blog post). While presentations may address several of these strands, we ask you indicate the primary strand that best describes your proposal. Please also list the appropriate NETS (National Education Technology Standards) for your presentation for Students (S), Teachers (T), and/or Administrators (A).
Why present? Over 1,500 educators attend METC. Attendees include instructional technology specialists, K-12 teachers, library media specialists, building & district administrators, and network specialists from all over the United States, but especially the Midwest. Here are types of presentations at METC:
• Preconference workshops on Monday, February 13th: either Half-Day Workshop (3 hours) or Full-Day Workshop (6 hours). All workshops emphasize hands-on experience for participants.
• Breakout Session (50 minutes) on Tuesday, February 14 & Wednesday the 15th.
• Bring Your Own Laptop/BYOL (1 hour, 50 minutes) on February 14 & 15th.
Preconference presenters will receive one free day of attendance to be used for their choice of either Tuesday or Wednesday. If they elect to attend a second day, the cost is then only $90.
Breakout session presenters on February 14 and 15th receive a reduced registration fee on the day of their presentation of only $50. If the presenter would also like to attend a second day, the fee for that day is only $90.
