The 18th annual Educational Technology Leadership Conference

Virginia's Educational Technology Leadership Conference provides a convenient and timely forum for technology leaders from throughout the commonwealth to share experiences that inspire, inform, and provoke discussion.

The overall theme of the 2012 conference deals with e-learning leadership. You will find a range of presentations dealing with the options and opportunities, as well as the problems and issues, associated with this topic. The program will include special sessions focusing on successful approaches to e-learning leadership and the programs, people, and technologies that make e-learning work. 

In addition to the overall theme of e-learning leadership, the 18th annual conference will provide opportunities to learn about innovative and productive uses of technologies in both virtual and non-virtual schools and to share approaches and experiences related to the major components of Virginia's 2010 - 2015 educational technology plan. There also will be special strands dealing with Virginia Department of Education programs and initiatives and with the benefits and challenges associated with flipped campuses and BYOD policies and strategies. 

Virginia's Educational Technology Leadership Conference once again provides an ideal opportunity to explore new technologies, establish new contacts, and review trends and issues related to the effective integration of technology in Virginia's classroom. This key event will be an invaluable experience for technology leaders charged with planning and implementing technology in Virginia's schools.

The Educational Technology Leadership Conference brings together a wide range of leaders who are responsible for the planning, coordination, and implementation of e-learning, educational media, and technology programs. Division superintendents and principals, curriculum coordinators, staff development and administrative computing specialists, classroom teachers, and telecommunication professionals will benefit from the program and the opportunities to connect with their colleagues from across the Commonwealth. Coordinators of instructional technology, library media, distance learning, instructional television, and instructional computing applications once again will find this event a valuable source of information and innovative ideas. 

The Educational Technology Leadership Conference is sponsored by Virginia Tech's Center for Instructional Technology Solutions in Industry and Education.
