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.

In today's world if you're not moving you're left behind.  Attention spans only last between 5 and 15 minutes.  You lose approximately 30% of your audience during PowerPoint presentations. And in front of your classroom, you're supposed to have 100% of your students’ attention 100% of the time.  What's a teacher to do?  Think about it.  How often have you been sitting in a meeting and started making a grocery list instead of notes?  How many of your Facebook posts were when you were sitting in a Professional Development?  Why then do we expect more of our students than we are willing to deliver? Well, in this session we are going to try and expose you to a few tools that can make your classroom a little more Edutaining!  In this session, you will learn about Office Mix, Nearpod, Prezi, Glogster, Thinglink, Tellagami, and Aurasma and how they can help you turn from a “sage on the stage” classroom to an interactive one! All of the aforementioned apps are appropriate to use with Elementary School, Middle School, High School, and Higher Education classrooms and, as presentation tools, can be adapted to fit all of the Virginia Standards of Learning that you already integrate into your classroom. "Research by academics at the MIT Media Lab, suggests that students' brain activity is nearly non-existent during lectures." - Gail Marshall "At the Core" Entrsekt July 2014
