Flipping the Script – Connecting through Technology & Educational Opportunities
The circumstances of the past few years challenged educators across Ohio to find new ways to bring their educational methodologies to their classrooms, their districts, and their communities, all while keeping students engaged. Rising to the occasion and overcoming those obstacles meant reimagining education and discovering opportunities for advanced learning using technology, often-virtual connection, and collaboration.
Today, the script has flipped – rather than having to adapt teaching methods to their circumstances, educators are embracing what they’ve learned and finding new and innovative ways to connect, making the most of technology to create education opportunities that not only captivate students but also foster even greater collaboration and interaction.
This year, #OETC22 is celebrating those advancements in technology, as well as how educators have used that technology on a daily basis to help students excel, provide additional flexibility in the classroom, and bring connection to the fore of the learning process.
#OETC22 highlights the new best practices, the new lessons learned, and the new ways of thinking that were born during a pandemic and flips the script to showcase how educators will use these tools to thrive together during whatever lies ahead.
The Ohio Educational Technology Conference (OETC) is the one of the premier P-20 state educational technology conferences in the country. Each year, more than 4,500 educational technology professionals and enthusiasts come together to explore the forefront of P-20 learning and innovation in Ohio.
Designed to cultivate partnerships, promote collaboration, deliver high-quality information, and make technology accessible and enjoyable for educators, OETC is the must-attend conference of the year for P-20 teachers, curriculum and technology coordinators, administrators, higher education professors and administrators, and everyone who is interested in learning more about what’s happening in technology today.
Better Teaching Through Technology
As Ohio’s premier professional development opportunity for P-20 educators, the OETC offers a wide variety of sessions, displays, demonstrations, and learning experiences designed to showcases best practices, introduce innovative teaching strategies, explore interactive classroom environments, and highlight the implementation of new technologies to empower more effective teaching and learning.
Throughout the conference, attendees can learn what’s new and look toward the future by exploring new technologies, experiment with hands-on demonstrations in an interactive atmosphere, and learn how to integrate new ideas and new teaching methodologies into the learning environment.
#OETC22 will take place virtually February 14-18, 2022.
Did we mention that OETC is fun?
Aside from the interactive learning and new technology, OETC provides a forum for exploration, connection, and collaboration, making it the single best place for educators and innovators to network with their peers, share their ideas, and have FUN!
At the end of the day, our greatest goal is to empower our attendees to embrace technology by sharing the latest tech developments, providing the time and space to exercise their creativity, and helping them connect, explore, and learn.
