Exciting Updates from #OETC14

Happy New Year! We hope you enjoyed the Holidays and that you’re staying warm in this freezing Midwest weather! Lots is happening in the world of #OETC14 and we’re excited to share this programming updates and a few sample tweets and posts for your review.

This is the final week of voting for the Best Ed Tech Awards - over 20,000 votes have been cast! Winners will be announced next week.

As always, please let us know if you have any suggestions for features and presentations to highlight during the conference or if you have any questions about #OETC14.

  • The have announced two (2) After Hours Tweetups during OETC14! Last year’s popular event at Bernard’s Tavern inspired us to hold two tweetups this year, Monday night again at Bernard’s and a second event Tuesday at North High Brewing. They are encouraging attendees to register through EventBrite (information in link above).

  • The STEM Robotics Challenge will host THREE competitive events during #OETC14! Monday features a middle school LEGO Robotics Systems competition, Tuesday features the middle school US Airforce Qualifier, and Wednesday will feature the high school US Air Force Qualifier for VEX Teams.

  • The Columbus Zoo sponsors The Zoo to You: Columbus Zoo and Aquarium School Programs which will include information on tech-inclusive opportunities at the zoo and also feature some unique animals for attendees to interact with at the conference.

The School Video News Broadcast Center will feature a working studio that could be implemented in any K-12 environment. Staffed by technology professionals and students of Ohio schools, the Broadcast Center will produce stories featuring topical conference events and interviews with attendees, exhibitors, keynote speakers and others.

This looks like another exciting conference and I hope educators take the opportunity to attend and share what they learn.
