Proposals Now Being Accepted for the Ohio Educational Technology Conference, February 2010

The theme of the 2010 Ohio Educational Technology Conference, P-20 Conversations: Shaping a Path for the 21st Century Student, addresses the need to provide seamless technology integration throughout students’ careers. Reflecting this year’s theme, the sponsors of last year’s Learning, Libraries and Technology conference — Ohio Learning Network (OLN), OhioLINK and OARnet — have joined with the Ohio Resource Center (ORC) and eTech Ohio, the technology service provider for primary and secondary education, to provide a premiere professional development event for all of us – teachers, faculty, librarians, instructional designers, administrators, students, and technicians.

The conference organizers are seeking interactive and engaging proposals for presentations, posters, and technology demonstrations. Proposals for college and university audiences will be peer reviewed by a committee of higher education representatives. In exchange for presenting a session or display, the presenter and co-presenter(s) will receive complimentary registration for the day of the presentation!

This year’s conference features three types of proposals:

  • In the room: 45-minute sessions of a variety of formats that are held concurrently in breakout rooms
  • On the board: full-day poster displays located in the interactive Technology for Learning Center
  • Out of the box: highly interactive, hands-on sessions that are held in the Technology for Learning Center

All proposals must be submitted through the online proposal system hosted by eTech. To submit a proposal, the presenter must create an account in eTech Ohio’s online user account system, called “Hall Pass.” (When prompted for “Organization Category” select “Other” followed by “College/University”) With that account you can submit the proposal by following the “Begin a proposal” link at one of the three proposal types above. The deadline to submit a proposal is October 7, 2009. Please note that the proposal deadline will not be extended.

The 2010 Ohio Educational Technology Conference will include keynote presentations, hands-on workshops, vendor exhibits and technology demonstrations. It will be held February 1-3, 2010, at the Greater Columbus Convention Center. Online registration is available now with the early bird conference registration rate deadline on December 2, 2009. Volunteers are also sought to provide support for conference organizers. Volunteers receive a full-conference complimentary registration in exchange for working eight hours onsite at the conference; this is a great opportunity for students interested in learning more about educational technology.
