  • The best sessions are more than instructions on how to use a tool, they suggest ideas for integrating that tool in an educational setting. 
  • All sessions will be classified by ability level (beginner, intermediate, advanced). 
  • All sessions will be added to one of three tracks:
    • Instruction (geared for teachers)
    • Technology (geared for IT staff)
    • Administration (geared for school administrators)
  • Although it is not required, you are encouraged to create a short video "abstract" to promote your session.
