It's an unconference for Tech Directors! This will be a one day, structured opportunity to share technical demonstrations and discuss a wide array of topics impacting Technology Directors, professionally and technically. Short sessions will run throughout the day, starting at 9am and finishing at 4pm. ITSCO is partnering with the Tech Coordinators from Central Ohio to assist in organizing and hosting the event and it is open to staff from across the state.
Attendance is open to School Technology Directors, CTO/CIOs and Technology Coordinators (Instructional and/or operational) directly employed as staff by a school district, ODE, an educational service center, or an ITC in Ohio. No outsourcing staff or contracting companies are permitted. This is a one day, free event focused on K-12 technology leadership, to meet and discuss ideas and issues that are relevant to tech directors. This is a great opportunity to connect with colleagues, dive deep into a range of topics and put our strong peer network to work.
How does an Unconference work?
Unconferences are events run by participants. Attendees set the agenda for what’s discussed, lead the sessions and workshops that fill the schedule, and create an environment of innovation and productive discussion. We will have a few sessions posted here prior to the event. The remainder of the sessions will be decided by attendees.
Interested in presenting?
The best unconference sessions are led by people who see themselves as facilitating a conversation, not giving a presentation. Sure, you can start by sharing your experience, challenge, new idea or thesis, but remember to be inclusive of your attendees. Set clear goals at the top of your session, make sure all attendees introduce themselves, assign a notetaker, then let the conversation unfold. Sign up now to present!
