As it has for the past 19 years, the annual Jefferson Overseas Schools Technology Institute (JOSTI) conference will be taking place from June 25 through June 29, 2012 at the Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology. This is a week-long educational technology conference with two main strands. The first strand is for teachers who want to add technology into their curriculum, and the second strand is for educational technologists who deploy and support the school IT infrastructure. One unique feature of this conference is that it is completely free (once you get there) with the tab being picked up by the U.S. Department of State, Office of Overseas Schools. Gauging from last year’s program, the topics covered look very informative and geared specifically to meeting the needs of the international educator. The registration form must be submitted by March 16, and you’ll need your school director’s signature on the form. Lastly, there are a number of other training conferences offered by the OOS that could also pique your interest.
