Speaker Program Update

The Speaker program is really taking shape. Naturally, the speaker program will highlight today's technology and its use in the K-12 arena with presentations from a wide variety of speakers.
For the Pre-Conference sessions, the presentations will cover IP Telephony Implementation and Web Objects. These sessions are scheduled for Tuesday afternoon (11/13) and will provide an in-depth look at these topics.
In addition to the usual set of break-out sessions, we are putting together a special strand of "hands-on" sessions for those of you that would like an opportunity to not only hear about topics such as using Microsoft Project, but to actually have the time and technology available to try them out!!. Keep your eye out for the conference announcement and check the CEDPA web site occasionally for details.
There will be six speaker sessions, two "hands-on" sessions, and two NOC "tech talk" sessions going concurrently, so you will have a wide variety to choose from. The speaker sessions are tentatively organized into six "strands", including: Dollars and Sense; Wireless and Other Current Technologies; K-12 I.T. Management Issues; SETS; Implementation Experiences; and Odds 'N Ends.
Below is a partial list of topics that are currently planned for the Speaker Program. As is the case with any undertaking of this nature, you should expect a few changes as the conference approaches, but this list will at least give you a good idea of the offerings at the November conference.
