Keynote
Our Friday morning keynote speaker this year will be Charlie Miller, the Founder and Chief Designer of Flipgrid. If you aren’t already using this tool with your students, Flipgrid is a social learning platform “where your students go to share ideas and learn together.”

Exhibitors, authors, bookstore…
The conference is a great chance to visit one-on-one with vendors to find out about the latest products available. Our vendor members are a huge support for the organization, so be sure to stop by and return the favor. Authors, authors, everywhere! Each year ITEM features a number of local authors who are available to sign books and share about their work. In addition to the luncheon author panel this year there will also be a breakout session or two featuring the authors. Just learned about a new local author and you simply must have a copy of their book? Visit the ITEM Bookstore!

Thursday Evening Social
If you come up Thursday evening kick off your conference with some relaxation and join us at the Carlos Creek Winery from 6:30-10:00pm. There will be a shuttle available every half hour from the resort to the winery and there is no charge to attend – only for whatever delicious beverage(s) you decide to try – but please RSVP on your registration form. (Note: If you registered before this event was available you can still attend, but please email Deanna at admin@mnitem.org to let us know).
