We debated a pre-registration model vs a conference (pick and attend) model. Both had their positives and negatives. Ultimately, we decided that a conference model outweighed a preregistration model. This means that once the room is full, attendees will need to choose another session.
We plan to have facilitators and school technology specialists assigned to areas but do not plan to provide individual facilitator/technology person support.
We will ask attendees to bring their own device. We will ask principals to support their school’s attendees in allowing them to bring a device from their school as needed.
There will be three different types of sessions – 90 minute presentation – 180 minute workshop – 270 minute full day workshop.
We used the interest survey conducted in October/November to guide how many sessions of each type would be needed.
