District Presenter Application

Welcome! Tech Expo is the region's cap stone event for educators to share promising and best practices from their teaching and/or administration.  Last year, Tech Expo was cancelled due to COVID and we invite you to submit to present based on experiences from last year, this present year, or both. 
 
This year, our conference is 100% virtual with two opportunities to contribute: you can apply to present a 45 minute live Zoom presentation, and/or an asynchronous poster session.  Consider either or both as you reflect on your teaching over the past two years, and feel free to tap a colleague or student to co-present.

This application will allow you to select the format that works best for you:
 
Live Zoom Session:  Presenter(s) will conduct a live 45 minute session within the conference software's Zoom room.  These sessions will be scheduled during one of the three breakout timeframes, from 1:00pm-3:30pm on 5/21/21.
 
Poster Presentation: Presenter(s) will build a multimedia "booth" within our conference software that can display video, text and /or images.  Poster sessions are asynchronous and intended for our conference guests to peruse at their leisure during the conference. This is a great opportunity for students to get involved – consider letting your students work on the creation of a poster session with you!
 
This year we are pleased to feature nationally renowned keynote speaker Manoush Zomorodi (journalist, podcaster, and media entrepreneur.)
