Technology Sessions in San Diego?

The rollout of the descriptions of the sessions at the annual NCTM Conference are out now (link)  and as usual CLIME is busy analyzing the technology content of the sessions.

This year is interesting in that there isn’t a tool & technology strand. My thought was that there would be a much lower number of tech oriented sessions since all speakers would pick one of the proposed trends & topics for their talks. Fortunately, many of the speakers managed to include a tech session within the context of the proposed themes which were broad enough to include technology.

Ideally we shouldn’t need a tech & tool strand because most of the presenters (by this time) should be tech savvy enough to demonstrate how they use tech within the context of their theme-based talk/workshop/burst. But based on the number of presentations (12%) mentioning some form of technology I don’t think we’re at a point in time where we can ignore what the revised technology principle envisions.

Technology sessions: Out of 760 sessions there were 93 that were tech related. See list here.

In my next blog post I’ll go into more detail about some of them.

A reminder: Our annual CLIME meeting will be held on Thursday. Here are more details.
