    • June 18th, Elementary Conference Day 1
    • June 19th, Secondary Conference Day 1
    Apply

    Have a question?

    Please email Larissa Mezynski at lmezynski@esc12.net!


     

    Please use the brainstorming document to help you prepare the necessary information to submit your online proposal. 


    Learning experience proposals must be submitted no later than Friday, March 29, 2019. 


    Selected presenters will receive complimentary registration to the Conference, and will be invited to a free, pre-recorded webinar addressing how to build a learning experience for adult learners!

      • In the proposal application, you have multiple options that will guide your presentation which are detailed below.

        • You have the opportunity to lead a 45-minute learning experience (Elementary & Secondary ONLY).
        • You have the opportunity to lead a 75-minute learning experience (Early Childhood ONLY).
        • You could also participate by leading a 15-minute spark experience. You will be located in the technology playground, and participants will move about as they please, engaging in the spark experiences and exploring the technology tools made available. For more details on the spark experiences, see below.  
      • Working with adult learners can be very different from working with young learners. Selected learning experience leaders will be invited to a pre-recorded webinar addressing best practices in building a workshop for adult learners.
      • You are most welcome to have a co-leader. You may co-lead with a fellow teacher, an ESC specialist, a teacher leader, or even an administrator! The proposal application will allow you to submit the information of your co-leader.
      • We are only accepting proposals for June 18th & 19th at this time. Fill out the proposal form, and then email Larissa Mezynski at lmezynski@esc12.net with any availability concerns. We will definitely do our best to work with your schedule and availability, but if you are unable to lead a learning experience on the 18th or 19th, it may not be possible to accept your proposal submission. 

      • A spark experience is a 15-minute experience where the presenter shares a quick idea, concept or tech tool that they are using to create meaningful learning experiences for their young learners. The structure of a spark experience will be flexible, with several spark experience leaders located in the technology playground; each will have a table for tactile and visual resources to showcase to participants. Participants will have the freedom to move about the room as they please, stopping to hear the spark experiences that they feel apply to their students (think "science fair" set-up). Projectors and computers will not be available for use by spark experience leaders. 
      • Feel free to email Larissa Mezynski at lmezynski@esc12.net with any of your questions or concerns. We want to do everything we can to help you through the process so you will be able to share your experiences and knowledge with the educators of Region 12!
