The Innovative Learning Conference (ILC) offered educators from the western US and throughout the nation a chance to explore the latest trends in teaching with technology.  It was the first annual ILC conference, and was held October 14-16, 2008 in San Jose, California.

Mike Easton, Executive Director of Education Events for 1105 Media, says “Our inaugural conference, produced in association with CUE (Computer-Using Educators, Inc.), was an outstanding first-year event, with engaged, enthusiastic educators. 

“Attendees enjoyed an exceptional few days of professional development, taking part in workshops and sessions that were cutting-edge in their content and practical in their ‘use-it-today’ ideas and approach.” 

One Beaverton, Oregon high-school computer teacher and ILC presenter, Colette Cassinelli,  blogs: “ILC 2008 was a great conference.  I met a lot of ‘virtual’ friends and was inspired to try some new things in my classroom to better meet the learning needs of my students.”

The conference featured expert speakers and respected leaders in education and technology.  Keynote speaker Danny Forster, host of “Build It Bigger” on the Discovery Channel, was a favorite, capturing everyone’s imagination with his approach to learning through unconventional methods.

There was also an exhibit hall where more than 100 of the nation’s leading solution providers demonstrated the latest innovations in classroom technology.

Says Hall Davidson, Director of Discovery Educator Network, “Great speakers, great topics — the right people were in the room and the entire conference had impact.  I had memorable conversations with educators from Florida, Australia, and Latin America.  ILC is now on my permanent list of conferences.”

The 2009 conference will again be held in San Jose in October.
