Spring CUE Conference Features Free Workshops, AR/VR ‘Playground’ and All Things Google

Feb 21, 2018

PALM SPRINGS, Calif. will not be calm on March 14-17. Closing in on its 40th anniversary, CUE’s annual flagship conference will bring together around 5,000 educators at an event littered with sessions on classroom integration strategies, game-based learning, coding tools and all things Google. Meredith Walker, co-founder of Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls, an organization grown out of a popular YouTube channel of the same name, is keynoting the event along with FableVision’s Peter and Paul Reynolds.

The show will be headquartered in Palm Spring’s convention center, but this is a city-wide affair spanning multiple hotels.

A slate of workshops, free for attendees, hosted by Buck Institute and the Krause Center for Innovation will take place on the opening Wednesday. On Thurs. March 15, A quartet of Google certified educators will host another fast-paced “slam” presentation, sharing a spate of lesser-known tips, extensions and tools specific to the Google ecosystem.

This year, a augmented and virtual reality “playground” will join CUE’s existing STEAMpunk area, where attendees can get hands-on with a selection of popular tech tools. Additional convention center keynotes include “Ditch That Textbook” author Matt Miller and author and classroom design consultant Erin Klein. Alice Keeler, Leslie Fisher and AltSchool’s Devin Vodicka are also slated to present.
