Please see below for information on how to apply for AviChai scholarships to the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) 2012 conference. This conference is the premiere conference for any and all educators interested in or utilizing technology in the classroom. Last year there were over 15,000 participants.
It can be an overwhelming experience for anyone new to the conference and we will be sending out information on making it an easier and fruitful experience as we get closer (feel free to join the YU 2.0 ISTE group http://yu20.org/group/isteconference). However, for anyone who is part of the AviChai group, you will find yourself with some helpful direction and a cohort of colleagues to support each other as well as share ideas and reflection. I recommend the ISTE conference to any Jewish educator who wants to stay current and the AviChai scholarship makes it possible along with enhancing the experience.
The AVI CHAI Foundation is awarding
ten scholarships for the
International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE)
2012 conference, taking place on June 24-27,
in San Diego, CA.
Applications are now being accepted
and are due by March 12, 2012.
ISTE’s annual conference and exposition is the premier educational technology event, with over 20,000 enthusiastic education and technology professionals in attendance. Selected educators will have the opportunity to participate in keynote presentations, “bring your own laptop” sessions, poster sessions, the global gallery, demonstrations, affinity group meetings and more! Plus, as registrants of the ISTE conference, educators gain one year of ISTE membership.
To be eligible for this scholarship, you must be an administrator (head of school, principal, dean, rosh yeshiva, director of educational technology, etc.) at a Jewish day school in North America. Preference will be given to Jewish studies oriented educators. The AVI CHAI scholarship to ISTE will cover the cost of registration, hotel and kosher food. Any travel expenses will be the responsibility of the participant.
Selected educators will be required to write for The AVI CHAI educational technology blog prior, during and after the conference.
