Ohio Educational Technology Conference (OETC) @ Greater Columbus Convention Center
Feb 11 – Feb 13 all-day

The Ohio Educational Technology Conference (OETC) is the premier P-20 state educational technology conference. Each year, more than 4,000 educational technology professionals and enthusiasts come together to explore the forefront of P-20 learning and innovation in Ohio.

Designed to cultivate partnerships, promote collaboration, deliver high-quality information, and make technology accessible and enjoyable for educators, the OETC is the must-attend conference of the year for P-20 teachers, curriculum and technology coordinators, administrators, higher education professors and administrators, and everyone who is interested in learning more about what’s happening in technology today.

For three full days, attendees can learn what’s new and look towards the future by exploring new technologies, experiment with hands-on demonstrations in an interactive atmosphere, and learn how to integrate new ideas into the learning environment.

Aside from all the interactive learning and new technology, OETC is also the single best place for educators and innovators to network with their peers, share their ideas, and have FUN!

At the end of the day, our greatest goal is to make our attendees love to teach using technology by sharing the latest technology, giving them the time and space to exercise their creativity, and helping them connect, explore and learn.
