MITC 2008: Call for Presenters

Monday, April 7, 2008

The Missouri Research & Education Network (MOREnet) welcomes presentation proposals for the 2008 MOREnet Instructional Technology Conference (MITC). The conference brings together educators interested in maximizing the opportunities for technology in Missouri schools.

Web 2.0. Blogs. Podcasting. Wikis. RSS. Tags. We’ve all heard these words, along with buzz that this kind of technology is revolutionizing the learning experience. But what exactly is this revolution about? How do these tools impact teachers and learners in the 21st Century? How can you integrate these interactive, dynamic tools with the existing technology and curriculum in the classroom?

At the 2008 MOREnet Instructional Technology Conference (MITC): Teaching and Learning 2.0., we'll be answering these questions and much more. In addition to the conference focus on Web 2.0 technology, attendees will have access to other topics in the areas of technology integration: SMART Boards, distance learning, administration, leadership and many more!

As a presenter, you are also invited to attend and participate in the conference. While presenters whose proposals are accepted must register for the conference, registration fees will be waived for one presenter per accepted presentation proposal.

There are several presentation options available and we encourage presenters to select the format that best suits their material and style. We also encourage sessions that allow more in-depth study, practice and discussion among participants. The high-quality professional development sessions include three and six hour pre-conference workshops, hands-on seminars, roundtable discussions, human networking and collaboration opportunities plus an Exhibitor Fair that boasts the latest technology tools and expertise.

Presentation proposals are being accepted online through May 16, 2008. Please go to www.more.net/conferences/mitc to complete the online submission form. We will notify you of your proposal’s acceptance no later than June 13, 2008. We look forward to seeing you at MITC 2008. Please visit the MITC website  for information and full conference details, or contact MOREnet conferences at (573) 882-0289 or conferences@more.net.
