We are now accepting proposals for TiE2016 conference workshops! Share your brilliant work with others across the region and become a TiE2016 presenter. This year’s event will be held on Thursday, January 14, 2016 at Holyoke Community College.
The Technology in Education 2016 conference seeks compelling proposals that will support teachers, students, and the surrounding community to engage in connected learning.
The theme for TiE2016 is “Connected Teachers / Connected Learners”.
We are looking for presentations and conversations that will help us create and understand the context and culture we need to develop in schools that support connected educators and connected students. We strongly encourage presenters to include students as co-presenters!
Workshop proposals should address TiE2016’s theme and guiding questions; be informative and relevant; informed by theory, research and practice; encourage opportunities for learner engagement; and/or demonstrate the application of technology to participants.
- What are the pedagogies, policies, practices, infrastructure, and devices necessary for relating to and engaging all of our communities — local to global?
- What technology skills, knowledge, experience, and mindset do teachers and students need to be successful?
- How can technology:
- prioritize and center young people’s voice and experience with teaching & learning;
- be used to develop and support authentic and empowering partnerships between families, students, and schools; and
- increase collaboration and connection among teachers?
The deadline for proposals is September 18, 2015.
