METC 2009

Promethean Sessions @ METC!

The Midwest Education Technology Conference, held annually in St. Louis, Missouri, is January 26-28, 2009. METC 2009 is bringing together a diverse group of speakers to share their knowledge, experience, strategies and expertise using established and emerging technologies in the classroom. As educators we must prepare our students for new jobs that have not been created by giving them the skills to question, gather, evaluate and finally produce new solutions or products. Technology is a tool that excites and engages students to learn. One technology tool featured at METC is the Promethean Activboard. Sessions include:

  • Transform Your Lessons for the 21st Century Learner with an Interactive Whiteboard
  • Promethean User Group
  • Teaching Conventions Through Inquiry and Workshop Model
  • Advanced Promethean ACTIVboard

To read more about these sessions, visit the searchable program database.

… to get your METC 2009 presentation proposal in. It’s a busy time of the year, educators, but don’t forget to submit! Questions? Contact Nancy George. The METC 2009 program committee established two goals:

* Design a program based on strands that encompass technology in all aspects of education – classroom, library media center, school / district offices and network infrastructure.
* Offer a program that fits into educators’ individual learning plans and aligns with high quality professional development.

To reach programming goals, METC 2009 invites teachers, media specialists, administrators, technical support and other education-minded people who have effective instructional technology programs and management strategies to share their methods, plans & successes.
