Request for Proposal


Thank you for your interest in presenting at FETC 2018. You must use this online process to submit proposals for FETC 2018 by April 28, 2017. The Future of Education Technology Conference offers unparalleled opportunities to explore the evolving role of technology in the enhancement of learning and improvement of performance in PK-12 schools and districts. FETC brings together a collaborative community of educational leaders and technology experts to exchange techniques and empower participants with strategies for teaching and learning success.

Discover the future of education technology at FETC 2018, the premier international conference for the integration of education technology into the PK-12 community. Fuel your inspiration for innovative teaching and learning with expert- and peer-led sessions in topics and technologies that reach across the curriculum, all grade levels and areas of school management. The most dynamic and creative minds in the learning landscape—administrators, district-level leaders, state and national policy leaders and educators —gather at FETC to take part in this four-day exchange of ideas and techniques for the continuing pursuit of excellence. Be inspired by education technology implementations in compelling sessions, workshops and events for education professionals, industry leaders and policy practitioners committed to the future of teaching and learning.

FETC invites education technology professionals representing all levels, content areas and specialties, as well as industry and technology experts, to submit an application to present. If selected, your presentation will be scheduled for the international conference, January 23-26, 2018. Consider presenting at FETC to:

• Gain exposure for your work, your school and your district.

• Inform administrators and educators looking for collaborative strategies, inventive techniques and technological implementations to enhance learning and improve student performance.

• Share successful classroom practices, creative teaching and learning solutions, research and products that show emerging promise for PK-12 education and the evolving role of technology.

• Become part of a vibrant partnership that has made FETC conferences “must-attend” education technology events for more than 37 years.

By sharing your successful practices that transform learning for all students, you can help inspire and encourage other administrators, educators, information technologists and executives to creatively deploy technologies and expand the possibilities of learning through educational technology.
