Our attendees are School District Technology Leaders, Technology Support Staff, Technology Integration Staff and educators with a strong passion for immersing their curriculum with technology-rich content.
    Presenter Options
    Conference Sessions are 60 minutes each and are held on Thursday, October 24, 2024 and Friday, October 25, 2024 at the Willmar Event Center in Willmar, MN. We care about our presenters and will provide staff to assist with technical setup for your session and assist with any needs that you might have, allowing you to focus on your content delivery with confidence! We ensure that session content is relevant to our attendees and that those attending your session want to be there to learn and ask questions that will further engage you as a presenter with those in attendance.
    Presenter Perks
    Presenters for Conference Breakout Session proposals that are received by Thursday, August 1, 2024, that are not vendor-affiliated will receive one $20 coupon for each session being presented that can be applied toward admission to the conference.  If there are multiple presenters for the same session, only one presenter will receive a $20 coupon.
    Presentation Styles
    IT² will feature several types of presentations. We leave it up to you to determine the type of presentation you would like to deliver. When proposing your session, we will ask that you please indicate the type of presentation you will be providing to actively convey expectations to our attendees. The choices for presentation styles are:
    • Listen and Learn: Lecture style presentations. Attendees will be allowed to ask questions during and following the presentation.
    • Active Discussion: Attendees will be expected to be actively engaged in a discussion, either with the audience in its entirety or in small group discussions.  Session leader(s) will share knowledge and resources, but active engagement of the audience will be included.
    • Hands-On: Attendees will be expected to actively participate in “hands-on” activities that the presenter leads them through. These will most likely be interactive activities or apps. Please describe the virtual hands-on requirements for your session in the session description. If attendees are expected to bring specific devices, applications, or utilize an online resource, it should be detailed in your session description.
