NECC 2009

Greetings, honored members of ISTE’s Affiliates,

You are invited to experience NECC 2009, the premier professional development event of the year for anyone involved with educational technology. NECC, the National Educational Computing Conference, is the annual conference produced by ISTE, the International Society for Technology in Education.

Hosted in Washington D.C. in June, this conference promises to be the most “wired” and technologically fascinating event yet!  The NECC conference leverages technology to provide a unique, media-rich, experiential learning environment. And, for those of you in the U.S., this year NECC offers a wonderful opportunity to schedule a face-to-face visit with your congressional leaders in D.C., as well as the first-ever ed tech showcase event we’re hosting at the Library of Congress.

Attending NECC with members of your Affiliate enables you to represent your region at the conference and share your accomplishments with educators from around the globe. More than 60 countries are represented, adding to the excitement and collaboration that make this conference a truly life-changing experience.

The Most Valuable Professional Development Opportunity of The Year

  • More than 15,000 passionate educators from around the globe.
  • The most sought-after experts sharing the most innovative and effective best practice instruction.
  • An exhibit floor the size of FIVE football fields to explore the latest tools and resources.
  • Hundreds of hands-on demonstrations, fascinating people to get to know, and a non-stop stream of ideas and inspiration.

The ISTE Connection

A discounted ISTE membership for Affiliate members is included with your conference registration, but benefits reach far beyond the conference. You will continue learning and sharing year round by having access to a variety of networking opportunities, professional development, updates of critical news and ed tech developments, and so much more.  For more information about membership, visit ISTE’s member central.

Register Today

Visit the NECC Website to view the conference schedule and sign up. Because of your Affiliate’s connection with ISTE, the special “Super Early Bird” lowest rate is available for you until May 1. But don’t wait! We recommend you register as soon as possible for the best selection of workshops, special event tickets, and housing options. Be sure to also check out the ISTE Connects blog to meet fellow attendees, plan your trip, and follow up-to-the-minute chatter about NECC.
