Speakers attending Calgary City Teachers' Convention are responsible for the following items:
• Bring your computer and cables to attach to an LCD projector. LCD projectors at all locations are VGA ONLY.
Speakers are required to bring their own VGA cables and HDMI to VGA active converter cables and MAC converter cables.
BE PREPARED BRING YOUR OWN.
• Prepare your presentation and ensure it works. If the presentation is stored on a school board network or storage, ie CBE, CSSD, you may not be able to access your information. Do not make an assumption that it will work, create a back up copy on your computer or have a copy of your presentation on an external drive or USB device and bring it with you.
• There is a 45 min break between sessions. This is your opportunity to set up and test devices. If you are located at St Marys High School, there are limited resources during the 45 min window, plan ahead and speak to the onsite IT person in advance. There is only one person on site, this person has limited time therefore try to have all your AV issues resolved BEFORE you arrive on location.
