ABOUT TECH 2018
Each year, hundreds of students and teachers from across Illinois come together at the State Capitol Building in Springfield to speak with legislators about the innovative ways in which they use technology to enhance student learning. The resulting student technology showcase continues to impress upon our state legislators the importance of developing a plan to promote adequate, equalized and reliable funding to meet school technology needs.
The purpose of TECH 2018 is to increase awareness of the critical role technology plays in preparing students to succeed in today’s world by offering students throughout Illinois an opportunity to demonstrate their innovative uses of technology while highlighting the need for increased funding to support equitable and meaningful access to educational technology. From elementary to the high school classrooms, technology is the enabling tool of the modern learning environment, expanding the boundaries of the classroom while promising to transform all aspects of learning. TECH 2018 highlights the crucial role that technology plays in education -- ranging from increases in collaboration and critical thinking, to promoting learning beyond the limits of the school day -- by creating a space for students to share their learning and innovative uses of devices, the internet, and digital curriculum.
Applications must be submitted by Friday, March 9, 2018. All demonstrations are scheduled to take place from 9:30am-11:30 or 1:00pm-3:
