Presentation Proposal Criteria
We are seeking highly engaging, interactive presentations that provide audience members with a practical "take-away" -- something they may use in their classroom. The proposal should describe the purpose for the educational technology, innovative tools, or techniques you have incorporated into your classroom, how students are involved in using it and the impact it is having on student learning. Submissions should provide background information as to why this technology was selected. Describe any research- or practice-based pedagogical methodologies adopted in conjunction with or as a result of this technology.
The proposal should be clear, succinct, well-organized, and grammatically correct. Proposals should not exceed 400 words. See Abstract Scoring Rubric [pdf] for details. Please do not include any personally identifiable information in your abstract as they will be blind-reviewed.
