Last week that I decided to do a presentation proposal, instead of a paper, due to the extremely interactive and collaborative nature of my subject. I just don't think that a paper can do justice to the topic of using technology in a collaborative classroom environment.
I found that Educomm is accepting proposals for presentations for their 2012 conference, and entries must be submitted through their website by December 11, 2011. (just in time!)
There are a few different topics that Educomm is looking for, and you must select one of the following:
Teaching and Learning is definitely the way to go, as my presentation is all about motivating teachers to incorporate new technologies into their classroom. The website submission also asks for a 200 word (max) description, as well as what type of presentation it will be: Visionary Thinking, Problem/Solution, or Demonstration. I think it would be best to address this as Problem/Solution, with a bit of demonstration mixed in.
Next up - crafting the presentation!
