Cloudy and Cool for Ed Tech Day

The weather for Ithaca on Thursday is calling for cloudy and cool, but no snow.  The Nor'easter is staying away from central NY, but our thoughts are with our friends closer to the coast who are impacted by the storm.  Here in central NY it should be a great day to come to Ithaca for Ed Tech Day - we'll see you there!

It's Showtime for Ed Tech Day 2018!

We're looking forward to this year's Ed Tech Day!  If you did not have a chance to pre-register, you can still attend - just stop by the on-site registration desk when you arrive.  We'll see you at the show!



We hope that you will join us for our 28th annual Educational Technology Day at Ithaca College on Thursday, March 22, 2018 from 9 AM to 3 PM in the Ithaca College Campus Center. 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.

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.

The call for proposals are now closed.

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 (

Check back often as we update with 2018 information!

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!

We'll see you at the show!
