For Podstock 2017, we’re looking for sessions that encourage student and teacher creativity, support the innovative use of technology, and provide a fresh look at educational change.
If you’ve got something awesome to share with others, we want to make sure that others hear about it!Go here to submit your proposal.
Some basic tips and info to help you develop a successful proposal:
- Your proposal should focus on tools and strategies that support the idea that while we can’t predict the future we can prepare our students for it.
- Most sessions are 60 minutes long. But to encourage more educator-to-educator conversations, we’re hosting longer, 90 minute hands-on sessions during Thursday afternoon. If you have more to say and do, be sure to mark that on your proposal.
- Your Podstock 2017 session should focus not just on the presentation of content but also on involving your audience through hands-on learning, small group discussions, and interactive conversations.
- But we’re all about whatever works. So if you’ve got something else lined up – we’d love to see it. Don’t let us limit your awesomeness!
Not sure what a great session might look like? Pernille Ripp over at Blogging Through the Fourth Dimension asked people that very same question. In a post titled Every Workshop I Attend Should . . . What Attendees Wish We Knew, she shares some nice ideas about what we’re looking for.
The proposal deadline is April 1st. We will notify all who submitted proposals within a week after the deadline. Each accepted presenter must register for the conference but will attend for free and and receive a conference goodie bag. (If your proposal is accepted, we’ll send you a code to use during the registration process.)
We also expect that all presentation materials will be available in digital format. Any co-presenters must register and pay for conference attendance.
