    Finding the instructions on how to post handouts took me a little while. Here is the information from the NAEYC website:

    To upload your handouts, go to the link below and follow the instructions below:

    Enter the user name and password of the original submitter

    • Select the proposal to which you want to attach a handout
    • Click the link that says "click here to edit upload handout"
    • Attach your document and click "upload files"
    • To ensure that you uploaded the correct file, click on the file to view it
    • To save and close, click Save and Continue

     Please note the following file upload limits:

    • Limited to a maximum size of 5 MB
    • Limited to theses file types: .doc, .docx, .pdf, .ppt, .pptx, .wpd, .ppt, .pptx

    Handouts will be accessible via the online itinerary planner.

    Once I uploaded files for my session I noticed that it takes some time for the files to be added to my session listed on the online itinerary planner, the Precis Abstract Management of the Conference Schedule: 

    To see the handouts you click on the title of the session to open a small pop-up window describing the session, and scroll to the bottom of that window where handouts are listed and linked. Click on the handout file title to download.

    I like to search the online itinerary planner by topic, or keyword, or by the presenter's last name to find the session topics that interest me.
    Thanks to all the presenters who made the conference such a great learning experience! And to those who participated in my session with Cindy Hoisington and Ann Marie Cornelison, "Loving-and learning-science with young children: Expanding themes into science inquiry by bringing in the practices of science and engineering." Your gusto in exploring water drops and your questions made it a better session.
