2013 Call for Presenters

Greetings from the Rocky Mountain Google in Education Summit planning committee,

Recently, we announced the second annual Google in Education Rocky Mountain Summit to be held at Monarch High School on August 13 & 14, 2013.  Registration is now open!

Here is a link to the event website with all of the information: co.gafesummit.com

We are hoping that you would be interested in presenting at the Rocky Mountain Google in Education Summit. If you are interested, please take a look at a few of the session titles listed below (differentiated in levels of expertise) and fill out this form sharing your interest in presenting. Each of the sessions will be one hour in length and should engage the participants as much as you can. We encourage our participants to bring a device to engage with the topics and presentations. We will provide you with a projector and a screen, however you need to bring your own laptop for your presentation.

Please fill out this Request with the title and description of your session. It will also ask for some biography information.
Request for Presenters

You do not have to stick to a title from the list below, it is just a list of suggested topics. If you have another session that you would be interested in sharing that is not on the list, please feel free to add your own presentation and description. We will have a lot of sessions throughout the two day conference so feel free to fill out the form more than once if you would be willing to share more than one presentation. Each presentation is 60 minutes in length.

Please submit your presentation proposals by June 15th. We will be in touch with you in the middle of July to let you know more about the schedule for your presentation(s). If there is still room in the schedule, we will take request for presentations up until the week before the Summit, but this is only if we have openings.

For compensation, you will receive a complimentary registration to the two-day conference (a $299 value) and be able to work closely with this amazing group of Googlers and presenters. We sincerely hope that you will accept the invitation to present to make this a successful professional development event for all.

If you have any questions, please let me know. Please forward this information on to others you think might be interested in presenting at the Summit.
