In just a few short days, we’ll be gathering together once again to share with you the Spring VirtCon. This bi-annual conference taking place on Saturday, April 16 provides educators the chance to learn from some outstanding presenters throughout the day. It is up to you whether you do it from your own home, or at one of the 35+ Viewing Parties being hosted across North America!
This year, the VirtCon is following in the footsteps of our Powerful Practices series of workshops, focusing on topics like formative assessment, student engagement, personalized learning, and building culturally responsive classrooms. We have 11 incredible presenters who will be sharing their knowledge and inspiration with you throughout the day.
As always, the event is 100% free, whether you attend from home or at any of our viewing parties! To participate, all you need to do is register here and then visit the Spring VirtCon homepage on Saturday morning at 9am ET. If you’re on the west coast, we know that’s a little early for you. That’s why we’re archiving the entire event in real time. Just like with a DVR’d program, you can hit pause, rewind, or even scroll back to the very beginning and begin the conference on your own schedule.
I’m incredibly excited about our three featured speakers. Cindy Moss, the Senior Director of Global STEM Initiatives at Discovery Education will be discussing innovative ways to engage your students in STEM. Stephen Downes of the National Research Council in Canada will share his take on ‘Personal and Personalized Learning.’ We will close the day off with DEN STAR Rafranz Davis, the Executive Director of Professional and Digital Learning for Lufkin ISD, Texas, who will discuss ‘Media Diversity and Cultural Responsiveness.’
Visit the Spring VirtCon homepage to check out the entire schedule, find out if there’s a viewing party in your area, and to register to attend.
See you on Saturday at the #SpringVirtCon!
