Kansas City 2005 Conference April 3-5: Preparing the Next Generation for Technological Literacy


Preliminary Program 67th Annual Conference Kansas City, Missouri, USA

ITEA is "gain" to Kansas City," so make plans now to join us in April for what will be four days fitted with education, exploration, networking, and just plain fun.

Our 67th Annual Conference is going to be different, very different, than conferences of the past. Join your fellow teachers and colleagues for our 2005 theme, "Preparing the Next Generation for Technological Literacy." Some highlights of the many changes include:

* A Saturday evening Welcome Reception--your chance to socialize with your fellow teachers, renew past acquaintances and make new ones; this new event is generously sponsored by Forrest T. Jones & Company.

* General Session programs scheduled for 9:00am on Sunday and Monday at the convention center. The "Tech Talk" Cafe, a casual way to enjoy coffee and continental breakfast, will open at 8:00am each morning prior to the start of the General Sessions.

* Dedicated exhibit hours on Sunday and Monday, with buffet lunch service available in the hall each day. And who said there is no such thing as a free lunch? Complimentary lunch will be offered to fully registered attendees on Monday, compliments of Pitsco.

* Over 120 special interest sessions to choose from, in addition to seven pre-conference workshops. All special interest sessions and workshops will be held at the convention center.

* Monday evening's A Taste of Kansas City dinner and jazz tour is a fun way to see the city, taste the famous Kansas City barbeque, and enjoy the best of three of Kansas City's unforgettable jazz clubs.

Why Kansas City? Why not? Kansas City offers: a central Location, easy accessibility, affordability, world-famous jazz, dozens of unique museums, shopping at the picture-perfect Country Club Plaza, outstanding performing arts, tender steaks, the best barbeque, and the friendliest people on the planet.

This is one event you don't want to hear about from your colleagues after it's over. So make plans now to attend--Kansas City, seasoned just right, and welcoming your participation. We Look forward to having you join us.
