Welcome!

We hope that you will join us for our 24th annual Educational Technology Day at Ithaca College on Thursday, March 27, 2014 in the Ithaca College Campus Center.  The vendor and college showcases run from 9 AM to 3 PM, and seminars run from 9 AM to 4 PM.

This site provides you with all the information you need to find out more about Ed Tech Day, register as a participant or vendor, see what's new, or learn more about the vendors and others who will be at the show.

What is Ed Tech Day?

Educational Technology Day is a regional technology event that attracts over 1,600 people annually from the upstate New York region. It features local and national vendors such as AT&T, Apple, Brocade, Dell, Epson, Hewlett Packard, Panasonic and many others.

While one of the primary audiences for the event is the higher education community, the event is open to all, and there is plenty of information of interest to the K-12 and business communities. You’ll be able to talk directly with major computer and technology vendors, explore educational applications, be dazzled by computer graphics and state of the art audio-visual systems, learn how technology is being used today in and outside of higher education, and see what can be expected in the coming years.

Teaching and Learning with Technology Symposium Track

Once again we are partnering with the Finger Lakes Faculty Development Network (FLFDN) to offer a special “Teaching and Learning with Technology Symposium” track as part of Ed Tech Day.  The symposium consists of a special series of seminars running throughout the day and features sessions specifically focusing on innovations and best practices in using technology for teaching and learning, as well as scholarship assessing the effect of technology on student learning. See the seminars page for details on this year's presentations.

The Finger Lakes Faculty Development Network, which organizes this special track, is an organization linking people involved in faculty development at campuses in central and western New York.  Bi-monthly meetings rotate among member campuses or through web conferencing.  For more information about FLFDN please contact Wade Pickren, Director, Center for Faculty Excellence at Ithaca College (wpickren@ithaca.edu).

Check back often!

We're working hard to put together another great show. Please check back often for updates on vendors, seminars, and other happenings. And if you have any suggestions, please pass them along (and don't forget to check out our blog)!

We'll see you at the show!
