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.

Building a Community of Practice around Technology at VSTE

Technology is not the answer. It is just one of the tools in the educator’s toolbox that can bring about a pedagogical change to our educational system. Technology and classroom instruction have too often been throw together as if they magically fit. Often the best laid plans by educational leadership fail to value the success stories of the classroom teachers. Through a panel of expert ITC’s we will examine how educational best practices along with a variety of technology resources are making changes in the classroom. We will examine teaching methodologies like Cloud Computing and Flipping the Classroom and will share the resources that have been used to change the way teachers are teaching. We will offer through EdTechReview an opportunity for attendees to share and document their own personal experiences and build out a vibrant active community for educators sharing success stories while connecting with others VSTE members with whom they can build lasting relationships.
