NCTIES Conference 2012
NC Technology in Education Society
This year marks the 41st NCTIES (NC Technology in Education Society) Conference and features an awesome amount of professional learning and networking opportunities. Conference registration gives you access to choose from over 160 sessions, a number of featured speakers, and a lunch keynote.
The theme for this year is Engaging Generation NOW – learning, teaching, creating in the digital age. The Generation NOW has grown up with technology, as opposed to being introduced to it later on in life, as many of us were. They are now used to having information on hand at all times, and have become true multi-taskers. As educators, we need to be able to understand the Generation NOW and learn how they learn best, how they are responding to the teaching methods we use, what technologies they like to use, and last but not least, what they want from their education.
Come and learn a new teaching method, program or app using your favorite technology tool. Expand on what you already know but learn how to teach it in a way that is engaging and promotes student creativity, an important skill for students and teachers to explore. Learn from others through the many Pre-Conference and Concurrent Sessions that will be offered, and through networking with friends – old and new. Visit our Vendors, and learn about the most current technologies developed to help teach and engage learners. Most of all, have FUN, and leave with a renewed look at teaching, learning and creating in the digital age.
Register here. Early registration through January 19. Special rates for students and retired educators.
