ISTE 2010* (*formerly the National Educational Computing Conference or NECC) will be held June 27-30, 2010 in Denver, Colorado.
ISTE member and non-member educators and students are invited to submit proposals for the conference. We also welcome corporate-sponsored proposals from exhibitors that demonstrate appropriate uses of information technology to support and improve learning, teaching, or administration in K-12 education or teacher education.
Dynamic presenters interested in engaging their audience in innovative ways should consider submitting proposals for Workshops, or the highly interactive Bring Your Own Laptop (BYOL), Model Lesson, and Open Source Lab session categories.
The juried portion of the conference program covers the breadth and depth of the educational technology field:
- from developing and articulating a vision of the role of technology in school improvement to implementing the technology infrastructure,
- from learning about technology to integrating technology into the curriculum,
- and the ethics and equity issues involved in all of these topics.
Educators and students at all levels, nationally and internationally, are invited to submit proposals. We also welcome corporate-sponsored sessions from exhibitors.
Proposal submissions are reviewed by independent committees of content experts, and evaluations are based primarily on:
- relevancy of topic to the field of educational technology
- educational significance and contribution to the respective theme and strand
- degree to which higher/second-order applications of technology are addressed
- ease of replication
- value to participants
- presenter knowledge and experience
Multiple proposals may be submitted, but typically only one presentation per person is accepted. Presenters are required to register for the conference and pay the registration fee.
