E-Posters

The E-Poster format for the Tech4Teach Fair will have the typical 'mall' arrangement of presentations. It will be an energetic & engaging opportunity to provide short informative experiences (4-5 mins) to stimulate subsequent engagement & learning with peers/colleagues & partners in the learning process. 

Large flatscreens & computers replace the cardboard posters that are typically displayed at fairs & conferences. We will have wireless access, but if you have any other technological requirements, please contact us and we will do our best to support your needs.

The E-Poster format for the Tech4Teach Fair offers an opportunity for the presenter to more effectively share information and learning strategies that would not necessarily be possible with a traditional printed poster. It is a DYNAMIC format that empowers presenters to access, engage, embed, share and/or demonstrate electronic examples of student work, content, teaching and learning processes, virtual learning spaces, software applications and a variety of other educational resources that would otherwise be challenging to share.

E-Poster Design - (25 min session)

Each E-Poster should be designed to last between 4-5 minutes.

Subsequently, you will be re-sharing your poster 3-4 times during the 25 minute session. Your E-Poster should be an idea & conversation starter for attendees to explore further with you & others, post-Fair, to initiate peer collaboration, support, or even communities of practice. It is also suggested that presenters anticipate & prepare for possible inquiries that extend beyond the specific proposal as you share the effective ways you use technology to enhance student engagement & learning.

In its most basic form it could be as simple as a website, powerpoint or Prezi, but why stop there?!
