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.

Come Together...Right Now...Collaborate!

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Have you wanted to just have conversations with others to learn more about what they are doing in their classroom or school district? Have you attended trainings or conferences before and found yourself learning more from just talking with others in a session, at lunch, on a break, or even just chatting between sessions? If so, then this session is for you! There are a number of "unConference's" and "EdCamps" being held across our state and beyond. This session is similar to those. It's where you show up to a conference or event; provide ideas on sessions you would like to learn more about or share with others; then leaders or facilitators are assigned to the sessions; and finally you meet and learn from each other. Well, this session is similar to that. A link to a survey for ideas on topics will be shared out prior to the session for those who are planning on attending. When you come into the session room, the survey results will be displayed. Those who have not completed the survey will be given the opportunity to do so as soon as they enter the room. Topics can be on anything you want to learn more about or even on something you would like to share with others. This is YOUR time to make the learning relevant to YOU! Once the topics are determined, we will break into small groups for 25 minutes of learning. Then we will all come back as a whole group and briefly share what was learned or discussed. Each group will have a notetaker who will add notes to a shared Google Doc so that all attendees will have access to the learning and resources shared. We will only be limited by the size of the room and the number of attendees. All you need is an idea or resource and of course, willingness to share. :-) So, let's come together, right now and collaborate!
