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.

Google Apps For Education: Educating with All Hands on Tech! Ever struggle with creating student excitement about learning? By using Google's Apps for Education tools: Docs, forms, and presentation, teachers can quickly and easily differentiate learning for students, create a 21st century learning environment, and provide hands on technology experiences which engage and challenge all students (ISTE S 1b). The presenters have used this format to determine students’ prior knowledge of a given topic and then differentiate learning to allow high achieving students to flourish while providing scaffolded activities for students who are on grade level or below (ISTE S 4a, b). Students are also able to reflect and collaborate with classmates on assignments (ISTE S 2a). This strategy empowers students to own their learning and participate in hands on learning activities with technology. It allows students to demonstrate their understanding of concepts through a creative outlet. (ISTE S 2a). The strategies learned in this presentation are easily adaptable to any subject area. Examples will be provided from subject areas of English, Science, Social Studies and Civics.
