Help us plan birds-of-a-feather sessions or request a meeting time for your group at ISTE 2012.
Information on Birds sessions at ISTE 2012
Birds of a Feather sessions are opportunities to engage in discussions about topics of interest. (They are not presentations.) Birds will be scheduled at the following days and times:
Monday, June 25 from 5:30 to 6:45 pm
Tuesday, June 26 from 5:00 to 6:15 pm
ISTE Special Interest Groups will also be meeting during the conference sessions and the Birds timeslots.
Purpose of the Birds Group
The purpose of the Birds group is to:
• identify prospective organizers/moderators, topics, or groups requesting meeting space
• identify collaborations between people with similar topics in mind
• gauge audience interest in the topics
• plan and develop the content (outline scope of the topic, guiding questions, useful resources, etc.)
• host results and ongoing information on the topics for a time following the conference.
Meeting space will constrain the number of Birds sessions that can be accepted. The ISTE 2012 Program Committee will make the final decisions and schedule the Birds sessions into timeslots and locations.
February 3–March 2: Contribute/brainstorm topics and requests for meeting space
March 5–9: Evaluate topics and potential interest in topic, form collaborations
March 13: Announce list of accepted topics and moderators
March 13—ISTE 2012: Ongoing: Planning of Birds
June 25–26: Birds take place and may post results/discussions/documents to this group or start their own group on the ISTE 2012 ning.
