About the MITI Master It & Take It Initiative . . .
New Hampshire educators are amazingly creative at using the teaching resources available to them, and we have always highlighted these creative teaching and learning strategies in our McAuliffe Stars sessions. NHSTE leadership also understands that to embrace new teaching and learning resources, educators need opportunities to explore and master these resources. The MITI – Master It & Take It – workshops are designed to provide educators with both the exposure and training necessary to investigate the potential of new and emerging learning devices.

What are my choices and what is the cost?
The eight MITI workshops are ALL scheduled on Monday, November 30, as Pre-Conference workshops. Four of the Monday MITI workshops are full-day, 6-hour sessions with plenty of time to learn how and when to use YOUR new device. The four Monday evening MITI workshops are 3-hour sessions. Each workshop is unique, so read the descriptions and choose carefully.
Again for 2015: Continental breakfast is included in your Monday registration fee for full-day workshops and will be available at 7:30 a.m. The Monday full-day workshops do NOT include lunch. An hour break is provided for heading out to a local restaurant or eating a “bring in” bag lunch.
Each MITI workshop fee includes the device(s) listed. CMTC will purchase the best model and brand recommended for instructional use by technology coordinators and highly rated by consumer groups. A volume purchase will take place in mid-November to garner the best value available for the advertised workshop fee.
Therefore, the REGISTRATION DEADLINE FOR MITI WORKSHOPS is November 6, 2015.
Please see the conference website in mid-October for details on models and specifications for the MITI device(s) selected.
MITI sessions are filled on a "first-come, first-served" basis. Register online and early to ensure a space!
*MITI pricing is estimated at this time. Full-day workshops are $110 plus the cost of the device(s). Evening workshops are $50 plus the cost of the device(s). Final pricing and device specifications will be posted on the CMTC website (www.nhcmtc.org) by mid-October.
