About TCEA Presentations and Workshops
You will experience a variety of presentation formats to fit your unique learning needs, provide in-depth exploration, and encourage creative sharing and learning.
Presentation sessions are 50-minutes or 90-minutes and consist of a presentation with handouts and time for interaction among the attendees and presenter(s). Presenters are encouraged to share proven strategies for successful curriculum integration from personal experience and research projects related to technology-based instruction.
PC Hands-on Workshop
In hands-on workshops, the emphasis is on working with the technology. Workshops are 90-minutes, 3-hours, or 6-hours in length. Each workshop will have limited seating to allow active attendee participation. All hands-on workshops are 1:1, one computer for each participant, enhancing the opportunity to learn in a hands-on environment.
Hands-on Workshops are included only with the Premium Registration upgrade. Pre-registration is not required. You should arrive early to secure a seat in these limited-seating workshops.
BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) Workshop
A BYOD workshop is designed to be an interactive and hands-on learning experience for participants. It is similar to a traditional workshop setting, but attendees bring and use their personal equipment. BYOD workshops are 90-minutes, 3-hours, or 6-hours in length and can be PC, mobile, or other hands-on devices.
BYOD Workshops are included only with the Premium Registration upgrade. Pre-registration is not required. You should arrive early to secure a seat in these limited-seating workshops.
An expert panel presents their views on a common topic, issue, or question, and then engages in discussion with the audience. The presentation will help participants further understand and evaluate the topics being discussed.
Academies are full-day events with a series of sessions that have a content-specific focus.
Academies are included only with the Premium Registration upgrade. Pre-registration is not required. You should arrive early to secure your seat at the academy. All participants must check in by the time stated on the academy program to receive access to all academy presentations.
These sessions, presented by exhibiting companies, further explore the products and services available on the show floor in an in-depth, informative, and non-sales atmosphere.
The Poster Pavilion will showcase multiple demonstrations and sharing opportunities in a relaxed come-and-go environment. Explore and engage one-on-one or in small groups with the pavilion presenters. The pavilion is designed to encourage meaningful conversations regarding idea, implementation, tools, and projects that you can immediately incorporate in your classroom, campus, or district.
