Poster Presentations

Poster presentations provide the opportunity to present innovative classroom practices, ongoing research projects, or classroom projects in an informal setting. During the poster presentations, attendees will roam from poster to poster and be able to engage in one-on-one, informal conversations with presenters.

Proposals should include the title of your poster, a list of the authors, a brief summary of the work to be presented.


Demos provide the chance to test out a game, an invention, or a creative concept with a real audience and gain instant user feedback. During the demos, attendees will choose from a list of demos and engage in user testing or provide feedback for creative ideas. Demos will be scheduled for 30 and 60 minute sessions.

Demo proposals should include a title for your demo, the creator's name(s), a brief description of the work to be presented, and a description of how you will engage with an audience.
