Midwest Education Technology Community
METC Conference 2016


EducationPlus will host its annual Midwest Education Technology Community (METC) Conference 2016 February 8-10, 2016 at the St. Charles Convention Center.  Known as this region’s premier education-technology event, #METC16 gathers over 2,000 leaders and educators from the midwest and beyond including superintendents, principals, K-12 teachers, administrators, support staff and others.   

#METC16 features regional and national experts who introduce participants to the latest trends and best practices in the area of education technology.  In addition, attendees have the opportunity to see examples of student-developed work, network and learn from colleagues, attend hands-on workshops and discover new and innovative ways to approach teaching and learning through technology use in the classroom.  It is estimated that over 400,000 students are impacted by this program each year, as teachers across all major disciplines return to classrooms and integrate new practices in education technology to deepen student learning.  


#METC16 offers business partners a unique and exciting platform to network with colleagues, connect with existing and potential clients, and promote innovative products and services.
