The Midwest Education Technology Conference is currently taking proposals for the the 2012 conference. We’re looking for breakout sessions that consist of a presentation with handouts (that will also need to be uploaded to the METC website- directions for posting will be available in November), plus time for interaction among attendees and the presenter. Presenters are encouraged to share their strategies for successful curriculum integration and transforming lessons that involve complex learning and thinking tools.
This year, we’re also interested in receiving proposals that feature SIG topics- Special Interest Groups, that is- as defined by ISTE. For example, the SIGIVC: Interactive Video Conferencing Special Interest Group promotes the understanding of interactive videoconferencing and related virtual learning technologies within the K–12 education community by advancing collaboration, information dissemination, research, and best practices. Other SIGs include (but aren’t limited to!) Administrators (SIGAdmin), Music and Technology (SIGMT), 1 to 1 Computing (SIG1to1), and Independent Schools (SIGIS).
