Education Technology

Share your classroom success story

If you are using Texas Instruments (TI) technology and activities to get your students excited about learning, please submit a proposal to present your classroom-proven methods at the 2019 T³™ International Conference.

The conference – the premier professional development event sponsored by Teachers Teaching with Technology™ (T³™) – attracts math, science and STEM educators from around the world.

Focused exclusively on using TI resources in math, science and STEM education, the conference is a forum for sharing new ideas and proven strategies that drive student achievement by building their critical-thinking and problem-solving skills.

If you are interested in helping to lead the conversation, please read the Presenter Guidelines (below). Then, begin compiling your presentation proposal.

Presentation submissions are due by Aug. 20, 2018.

Presenter Guidelines

  1. These are the T³ International Conference areas of focus for 2019. Please consider proposing sessions in these areas:
    • Using rich tasks to engage students in reasoning and problem-solving in math, science and STEM
    • Developing student understanding of math and science through exploration, discovery and project-based learning through the integration of TI technology
    • Strengthening the connection between math, science and the real world through engineering and STEM using TI technology
    • Using essential teaching practices to leverage TI technology as a tool for learning, exploring and doing math and science
    • Extending the use of TI technology in new and creative ways
    • Using instructional strategies, like formative assessment, to improve student outcomes in grades 6-12
    • Integrating TI technology with your professional learning community and teaching team
    • Learning techniques and best-practices for building classroom engagement and student understanding
  2. Please submit sessions for elementary grades through high school math and science, using TI-84 Plus CE technology, TI-Nspire™ technology, the TI-Innovator™ Plus TI Innovator™ Launchpad Board, the TI-Innovator™ Rover or TI-15 Explorer™. We are seeking a balance between proposals featuring TI-Nspire™ CX technology and the TI-84 Plus family of graphing calculators.

  3. Titles should be engaging and less than 75 characters, including spaces.

  4. Descriptions should be less than change to 500 characters, including spaces. As a best-practice, descriptions should be engaging, yet accurately describe the session you will present. Please use complete sentences and correct grammar. The program review committee reserves the right to edit, as necessary.

  5. AV equipment - All rooms will be set with the following:
    • One digital projector with VGA and HDMI connections and one projection screen. Requests for multiple projection screens will not be honored.
