Jennifer Womble speaks at FETC 2022.

We are thrilled to welcome our FETC professional learning community to connect, collaborate and fuel ideas to enhance the future of digital learning environments next January in a new location, New Orleans! We are designing a conference experience over four days, where senior level strategic decision-makers and educators will be immersed in inspiring content, discovering skills and strategies to cultivate positive energy, creativity, curiosity, and innovation. The disruption from COVID-19, continuing advances in digital technology, and intensifying demand for student-centered learning have combined to present an unprecedented opportunity to transform education across systems.

As we move from asking our students to be consumers of knowledge to asking them to create and apply their solutions to real-world problems, the digital world enables collaboration and multi modal communication, new ways to create and share new knowledge, and opportunities to amplify, accelerate and connect learners and learning. It is through this new lens that the Future of Education Technology Conference will select content to share with all five tracks in 2023.

FETC invites K-12 education professionals representing all content areas and specialties, as well as industry leaders and technology experts, to submit cutting-edge education technology presentations to the Request for Proposals for our 43rd Annual Future of Education Technology Conference to be held on January 23 – 26, 2023 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in beautiful New Orleans, La.

Whether managing information technology operations, or addressing instructional programs, administrative leaders will learn that connecting pedagogical practices, big data, well-being, and equity is the new role of technology. Presentations at FETC will represent a shift towards building learning partnerships, learning environments and powerful pedagogies that demonstrate technology’s indispensable impact on improving the quality of learning!

FETC 2023

The Future of Education Technology® Conference takes place live and in-person Jan. 23-26, 2023, in New Orleans.

The most dynamic and creative minds in the learning landscape—superintendents, administrators, district leaders, state and national policy leaders, IT directors, CIOs, coaches, media specialists and educators —will gather at FETC to take part in this four-day exchange of ideas and techniques about how technology is unlocking new ways to teach and elevate learning.

We’re looking for dynamic, charismatic, and articulate speakers to deliver original presentations addressing the latest trends in emerging technologies, leadership strategies for driving organizational change, innovations in pedagogy and proven practices for inclusion, equality, access, and wellbeing for school districts to utilize as they ensure impact, efficacy and usage of technology.
