Witness and experience 1-to-1 classroom teaching and learning. Hear teachers and students share their best practices, strategies and techniques that have proven to be successful. Witness first-hand how 1-to-1 functions during a school day.
    8:00 am to 4:30 pm – Flat Classroom Workshop 
    Students and educators from around the globe will participate in this global collaborative project. It brings together middle and high school students. Classrooms are flattened as teachers blog, share personal learning networks via nings, collaborate on wikis, and reach out to those who share a common curricular perspective. The workshop will run from Feb 25 to 27th as a parallel strand. 
    3:30 pm to 4:30 pm – Job-Alike Sessions
    A unique opportunity for educators in similar roles (e.g. MS Social Studies, K-3 classroom teachers, principals, tech directors/coordinators, etc.) to share tech integration ideas and resources. We will begin our conversations and sharing prior to the conference through grade and topic specific groups on the ASB Un-Plugged ning. We see the Job-Alike sessions as opportunities for all educators to learn from each other, to collaborate and expand our knowledge and practices, and to continue our conversations post-Un-Plugged. 
    5:30 pm to 8:30 pm – A Special Event at The Trident Hotel
    An evening dedicated to the power of ideas to inspire thinking and change attitudes. Get inspired by Scott McLeod, Bruce Dixon, Helen Barrett, Scott Klososky, and Doug Johnson.
