TCEA Sessions & Workshops
More than 400 concurrent sessions and workshops will be presented on subjects from the basics to industry-leading trends and hot topics by knowledgeable presenters and highly regarded educational technology experts in the country. We have something for every educator who wants to maximize their skills and learn more about technology integration in the classroom.
Indulge in the settings that best fit your learning preferences:
Presenters share proven strategies for successful curriculum integration from personal experience and research projects related to technology-based instruction.
Workshops emphasize hands-on technology. All hands-on workshops will be one-to-one, one computer for each participant, enhancing the opportunity to learn in a hands-on environment. There are several platform options for hands-on workshops including PC, Mac, Linux, and handheld devices. Workshops can be equipment provided or BYOD (Bring Your Own Device). All workshops are included only with the Premium Convention Registration.
Panel Presentation Sessions
A panel presents their views on a common topic, issue, or question, and then discusses them with the audience. The presentation will help participants further understand and evaluate the topics being discussed.
Exhibitor Showcase Sessions
Exhibiting companies present sessions to further explore the products and services available on the show floor in an in-depth, informative, and non-sales atmosphere.
