ICE 2017

Each year, the Illinois Computing Educators (@ice_il) host a conference in late-February to highlight advances and best practices in using technology in education. The four-day conference includes two days of half-day and full-day workshops and two days of hour-long introductory sessions and access to a large vendor showroom.

The workshops are designed to introduce new ideas and tools while offering attendees the opportunity to explore and implement new practices and lessons. The sessions showcase examples of technology integration.

Real-life teachers propose and lead most of the workshops and sessions at ICE. We have several teachers from Barrington 220 who proposed sessions at ICE and will present during the ICE Conference this year.

The ICE Conference takes place at Pheasant Run, in St. Charles, IL from Tuesday, February 28 until Friday, March 3, 2017.

This year, those interested in the ICE Conference can apply to attend by completing the ICE Conference 2017 Google Form: bit.ly/220ICE17. We will give preferred status to attendees who are part of their building administration, District Technology Committee, TPACK Team (DAL and iDAL coaches, Librarians, and Library/Technology Assistants), and, of course, anyone who is presenting at ICE. (Please note: Presenters are granted one free day of registration to ICE, but many of our approved presentations include more than one presenter. If you are presenting and are not the presenter granted the free day of admission, we will take care of your registration). Substitute availability will also play a major role in determining who can attend.

Please apply to register for ICE by completing the Google Form by Friday, December 9, 2016.
