The educators attending include teachers, technology coordinators, media specialists, administrators, regional consultants (ESU, Nebraska Department of Education), pre-service teachers, and higher education representatives. A majority of the attendees come from a four state region: Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, and South Dakota.
