     The 4T Virtual Conference began as a grassroots effort in 2011 as an opportunity for educators from across the globe to connect, network, and learn from each other about issues in technology education.  About 700 K-16 educators from across the globe sign up each year to attend the conference!  The conference is hosted by the faculty at the University of Michigan School of Educationand School of Information.  We are proud to partner with Oakland County Schools, the Washtenaw Intermedia School District, and Livingston ESA in Michigan.

The conference is FREE and OPEN to all educators.   The sessions target K-12 practicing and preservice teachers.  The conference is held virtually—no plane tickets, no hotel fees!  Links to the virtual rooms are found on the conference schedule page.
