VSTE Goes Green: Over the years we’ve made an effort to reduce the amount of paper waste that gets accumulated by reducing the scope of the printed program. This year we will provide a printed conference program with only a summary schedule of the sessions available during each breakout session. For the full detailed listing of each session we encourage attendees to make use of our online schedule here which will work on mobile devices and all major platforms.

Laptops, and websites, and learning galore! We’ve heard it a million times, “you could use this in language arts, social studies, or even science”, but what about MATH! Middle-school mathematics teachers will learn how to use technology to put “all hands on tech”, enhancing the classroom experience. The presentation will include the use of Blackboard, Mathalcious, blogging-journaling, Google presentation, Activinspire and more! Co-presenter Peter, Fiddner and I (Sherica Jones-Lewis) presented a similar session at the Virginia Council of Teachers of Mathematics conference in Harrisonburg, Virginia, and it was well received. At that conference, at in our everyday lives we listen to the same rhetoric, “you could use this in language arts, social studies, or even science”. The fact of the matter is, mathematics teachers aren’t interested in learning how everyone else is using technology; they want to use it themselves. The 1:1 in the Middle School Classroom presentation will highlight the need to connect science, technology, and math in an overall STEM approach, as well as showcase the use of multiple technologies, with examples from our classrooms!
