For Attendees

#OETC20 Coming Soon! 

Please check back May 15, 2019 for more information.

Make. Build. Do.

At #OETC20, we know technology can be both exhilarating and overwhelming, so we’re committed to making it accessible and fun. Whether you’re a tech newbie who’s just getting his or her feet wet or a more expert practitioner, we’ll bring in the experts who can show you what’s possible through level-appropriate courses that enable you to build skills and improve your working knowledge.

Learning is fast, fun, interactive, and easy! We encourage everyone who attends to bring their own device(s) to actively participate. Our experts will not only show you how to use the latest technology, they’ll also make sure you have plenty of time to interact and experiment with new technologies you can implement in your learning environments. We like to say that when you come to #OETC20, “you learn today and do tomorrow.” With our free-form, interactive-learning approach, professional development has never been more entertaining.

Learn what's new.

Look toward the future.

At the end of the day, we know that everything educators do is to help their students achieve. And that means starting at pre-k and continuing to teach all the way through graduate school and beyond, into the workplace. When you embrace technology, you empower students to become the best they can possibly be...and since technology is always changing, educators continue to learn and grow right along with them.

Every year, #OETC20 brings together more than 4,000 attendees from Ohio and surrounding states to teach them about the latest in education technology products and services suitable for classroom environments. We offer educational sessions and workshops, assistive tech labs, panel and round-table discussions, and some of the best keynote speakers in the industry. You’ll learn everything from digital content creation to using games and simulations in the classroom. We’ll show you the latest emerging technologies and help you understand how to use them in your learning environment.

Our amazing Exhibition Hall brings 250 exhibitors together to share the very best in educational technology, connect them with decision makers and purchasers, and allow potential users to try out the latest and greatest, firsthand.
