NCCE is seeking proposals from educators, consultants, and corporate partners for the 44th Annual Conference and Exposition in Portland, OR at the Oregon Convention Center, March 18-20, 2015.
Through the annual conference, NCCE delivers innovative programming to Northwest educational leaders. NCCE 2015 is expecting 1800 attendees and over 130 exhibiting companies. You’re invited to share with our conference audience your knowledge and expertise on a variety of topics covering a wide range of academic disciplines in K-12 education.
Information about new ideas and innovations, such as online and blended learning, gaming, DIY and maker activities, OER, MOOCs, Big Data, BYOD, and mobile device management.
A showcase of issues that are important to superintendents, principals, IT and curriculum directors, and other school leaders, such as Common Core State Standards, new assessments, legal and policy issues, equity, connected leadership, new models for professional learning, and moving beyond textbooks.
Presentations from field practitioners about what’s working in their classrooms, including STEM, ELA and the humanities, ESL, SPED, and more. The primary focus for these sessions should be on instructional methods and student learning, not just on technology.
Planning, management and resources related to infrastructure, mobile learning, cloud-based computing, security, and policies that support effective teaching and learning.
