The National ICT Center (ICT Center) is the driving force behind a national ICT Community of Practice including educational institutions and industry representatives to create and distribute current and emerging ICT content and curriculum through conferences and new media technologies.
The Mid-Pacific ICT Center (MPICT) mission is to coordinate, improve and promote the quality of ICT education, with an emphasis on 2-year colleges, in northern California, northern Nevada, southern Oregon, Hawaii and the Pacific Territories.
|Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) is an umbrella term, widely used outside the U.S. and by the United Nations, to encompass all rapidly emerging, evolving and converging computer, software, networking, telecommunications, Internet, programming and information systems technologies.|
For the third year in a row, the National and Mid-Pacific ICT Centers are joining forces to offer a Winter ICT Educator Conference, January 6-7, 2011, in San Francisco.
The event will feature presentations from industry sources of ICT educational resources and from the ICT Center and MPICT educator communities on quality ICT educational practices.
U.S. Community college educators in ICT-related programs are invited to attend this event free, with the possibility of receiving a stipend or partial expense reimbursment, and to submit a presentation proposal for quality ICT educational practices or stories.
Thursday and Friday, January 6-7, 2011 at the City College of San Francisco Downtown Campus, on the corner of 4th and Mission Streets, near the Powell Street BART/MUNI stations, in downtown San Francisco. We will start around 8:30 in the morning and finish around 7pm on Thursday and probably around 3pm on Friday.
Register today on-line, for free! - if you will really attend. If you register and later determine that you will not attend, please let us know, so we can free limited conference space for others.
We thank you for your interest in presenting at the conference. The agenda is now complete and can be viewed by clicking here.
