ITEA Baltimore March 23-25 2006: 68th Annual Conference Preliminary Program

Article excerpt


Dear ITEA Attendees,

Mark your calendars now for March 23-25, 2006 and plan to be in Baltimore, Maryland, a city on the move with new attractions, charming neighborhoods, ethnic and cultural diversity, the famous Chesapeake Bay cuisine and a wealth of history. Baltimore's perfect blend of the old and the new makes the city's urban renewal America's success story..... and the perfect place for the 2006 ITEA Annual Conference.

Teachers, teacher educators, and supervisors--there is something for EVERYONE in Baltimore. That's right--this year's Conference Program Committee recruited the most highly sought after teachers, who are successfully implementing technology education. Take a look at this conference program and you will see that the result is a 40% increase in the number of teachers presenting at this year's conference--just what you've been asking for! Teacher educators and supervisors will not be disappointed either-with an increase in the total number of presenters, the research and models that will be presented are at an unprecedented level!

Let's not forget about our high quality trade show. This trade show will prove to be the largest in years, bringing you resources and opportunities like you've never seen. ITEA staff has worked hard to bring together not only the most impressive trade show in years, but also the most focused on providing you resources for Technology, Innovation, Design, and Engineering--TIDE. You'll definitely not want to miss it!

Exciting general sessions, nearly 100 special interest sessions presented by your peers, a choice of eight pre-conference workshops, afternoon educational tours, a full social program including a dinner cruise and crab feast, and a tradeshow floor filled with companies offering new and exciting products for the profession.... it's all in Baltimore next March at ITEA. And be sure to check for conference updates on our Web site:

See you there.
