The NDATL Board of Directors

is pleased to announce the

Fall F2F NDATL Conference

Minot, ND

October 17 – 18, 2016

 

Please join us at the Grand Hotel as we continue the NDATL mission of “Committed to the improvement of education through the use of technology.”

Instead of breaking out in the morning with Mark Hammons, we will begin our day learning from the ISTE 2010 Outstanding Leader of the Year, Dean Shareski.  Dean is our neighbor from Moose Jaw, SK, and besides being the Community Manager for Discovery Education, Canada, he will be starting off our day with his keynote “From So What, To Now What?”  We will be bringing a major breakout experience at the end of the day…but we need to keep that a surprise yet!

Breakout Event

Evaluation

Of course, our conference cannot be complete without presentations from colleagues throughout North Dakota.  Dean Shareski will be presenting sessions; but we also need NDATL members to share their teaching and technical talent by presenting.  If you are a Technology Coordinator/Director  please offer to present on a specific topic within your role as Coordinator/Director.  Some considerations might be: Networking, Troubleshooting LAN’s, Active Directory Overview, Open Q & A, deploying devices, and File Servers.  Think about your role and what a good discussion would be and how it would help other Technology Coordinators/Directors.

We are striving to have strands at the conference that feature classroom instructional strategies, networking, device management, and makerspace. Sessions will be 50 minutes long.
