OETC: Applicant Info

Ohio Educational Technology Conference for APS Employees

What is it:  APS3T is searching for up to ten full-time APS educators who would like to improve their EdTech knowledge and skills by attending the OETC Conference in Columbus, Ohio. Our goal is to encourage APS educators to attend this event in order to positively impact their instruction and then share this knowledge with others at the June APS3T Conference.

Who should apply:  Any PreK-12 APS full-time teacher, librarian, counselor, or administrator who is willing to learn more about current and future educational technologies. Please read the following information and then submit your application via the form at the bottom of the page. Due by November 29, 2018 at 5:00 p.m.

Being super-techy is NOT required, but a willingness and desire to learn and share are!

The Details:

  • Read more about the conference by visiting the OETC Website. This annual 3-day conference offers world-class professional development to over 40,000 educators from all over the country. You are guaranteed to find great ideas here!
  • Conference registration, mileage, per diem meals, and hotel costs are covered as an attendee.  
  • Though we wish everyone who applies could attend, that may not be possible. In the event more applicants apply than we have funds for, submissions will be placed in a lottery and randomly drawn after the APS3T committee anonymously reviews completed applications for clarity and purpose.
