The big ideas are often shared at conferences, but what about those “little” things that you cannot do without in your practice – be it a tool, technique, or technology? Share a short and engaging demonstration showing us why this idea is not to be missed (Max 20 minutes). Rezzed examples and handouts are encouraged.
Share your research in our new Posters venue, with opportunities for both asynchronous exploration and scheduled synchronous presentation times during the conference. In addition to their poster, presenters are encouraged to provide a short video overview of their work to be shown at their poster booth. Students are strongly encouraged to share their current work with a poster presentation.
Presentation Proposals are welcomed from all subject areas and virtual environments that support teaching and learning. Whether you work at the elementary, secondary, or post-secondary levels, or support community based programs – we want to hear from you!
