Session Formats and Details

Sessions are 45-50 minutes long. You may request a double session but we do not guarantee it will be scheduled. Sessions are presented in the following formats:
  • Breakout Session: One or more presenters in a lecture or interactive format with Q&A
  • Panel Session: A moderated group of presenters who have prepared their topics ahead of time
  • Hands-on Labs: Apple, Microsoft, ChromeBook, and Cybersecurity hands-on, interactive training in a classroom-style format.
  • Showdown: Vendors present 10-minute presentations on their topic to a large audience; audience votes on the best presentation (not the best product!).
Sessions are accepted and scheduled based on a variety of parameters. "Sales" type presentations will not be accepted. Session topics must be relevant to the IT Professionals working in schools and to those using and supporting the technology used in schools.

Session rooms will be equipped with a screen, projector, microphone, and power. Basic connection cables will be provided but please bring your own cables for Apple devices.
