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.

Back to the Future is Not Mission Impossible for the Young and the Restless.

First we will take a trip Back to the Future via the one-room schoolhouse. Visualize the one-room schoolhouse—no walls, multiple skill levels, multiple grade levels, blended subject matter and one teacher. Sound familiar? Today we call it differentiated instruction, but futuristic thinkers will call it creative-critical teaching.Teaching requires an endless stream of new ideas. Sometimes the challenge seems overwhelming, but it is not Mission Impossible because you are the Young and the Restless. You are up for the challenge. I believe in you. I believe that our students’ inventions, hobbies, careers and ultimately their lives lie at the nexus of creativity and critical thinking and you must foster both by reaching beyond the expected and into the imaginative unknown. This message today will focus on You-- The Restless, and what it is that you must do to carry us into the future and meet the demands of this new technological generation.
