You Can Start Planning Now! #BIT14

Your BringITTogether Committee has been working very hard at plans for Ontario’s Educational Technology Conference.  The group met online just this week to update each other on the activities of the various sub-committees.

The keynote speakers have been in place for some time now:

After a hugely successful call for proposals, a terrific set of one hour presentations have been selected.  The BringITTogether Conference is a partnership between ECOO and OASBO ICT.  The ECOO presenters are in place; look for the OASBO ICT sessions to be finalized over the summer.  This, all in preparation for the conference on November 5-7, 2014 in Niagara Falls, Ontario.

The program is in place.  Again this year, the BringITTogether Conference will be using Lanyrd for the online program.  You can see the conference in action at this link.

With the Lanyrd application, you can start planning now as to which sessions you will attend.
