  • IT staff will help participants make connections between the session topics and their courses. 
  • Participants will leave with a better understanding of what's possible using technology and the skills to apply the techniques to their courses. 
  • The invited guest speakers (Sidneyeve Matrix and Mk Haley) will each present a follow-up workshop to their keynote presentations. 
  • Afternoon breakout sessions will provide participants a chance to pick topics of interest for small group interaction with technical assistance from IT staff. 
  • Live video feeds, recorded sessions, interactive conference website, photo streams and active social media feeds capture and expand the richness of the event. 
  • Participants can stay connected throughout the week using their own laptop or other device. 
  • Many speakers and topics are new this year, including a one-day iPad Institute
  • Register to attend one or more days. Those can't attend the event in person are invited to register to receive a web link to the live video stream.
