Welcome to the Iowa 1:1 Institute! We are glad you are checking on our annual institute and hope you will join us. It is because of each one of you that the Iowa 1:1 Institute has become the largest 1:1 event in the world!
The registration window is now open! Early bird registration ($50) will last until February 28th, 2014. Starting on March 1, 2014, the registration will be $65 per person.
The Iowa 1:1 Institute exists to:
Help the Midwest’s 1:1 districts learn from each other about innovative teaching, learning, and administrative practices that are occurring in their districts;
Build excitement and ‘buzz’ around 1:1 laptop computing initiatives in the state; and
Help others who are interested in 1:1 computing learn more about how to get started and be successful.
The institute is open to anyone interested in 1:1 laptop computing initiatives in P-12 schools, whether they currently are working in such a program or just want to learn more.
THINKING ABOUT ATTENDING?
Participants are responsible for their own travel, parking, and meal expenses (we’ll take a lunch break!). The pricing and information can be found around this site.
Participants will pick up their name tags once they enter the Iowa Events Center prior to the conference.
We will take a lunch break from 12:30pm to 1:30 pm. A variety of eating establishments are located nearby via the Des Moines skywalk and in the lower level of the Iowa Events Center. Participants are responsible for their own meal expense.
Everyone will have high-speed wireless Internet access throughout the day. We have been working hard all year to ensure the Internet is as strong and reliable as possible. All presenters will have hard-wired Internet as an option.
The social media hashtag for the institute is: #i11i (pound sign, lower-case i, number 1, number 1, lower-case i).
