2015 STEAM Connectivity Conference
Feb 7, 2015
This winter conference will focus on how to make the shift to STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics) integration and innovation.This growing movement of adding the Arts to STEAM while integrating the Common Core State Standards is critical to ensuring our students not only grow into critical thinkers, but also empowered creative, imaginative, and innovative citizens of the future. This year’s conference will showcase discussions, practical strategies, research, tools, resources, and demonstrations available for educators and leaders that can help them implement STEAM effectively in their classrooms, schools, and districts.
The virtual conference will be on Saturday February 7, 2015 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm (EST).
Sessions are provided by leading educators, administrators, businesses, and researches in the field. These presentations will be between 15-30 minutes in length and follow three strands: mini lecture sessions, hands-on strategy sessions, or demonstration sessions. This ensures that conference participants are receiving a breadth and depth of relevant information that is also practical to their needs as educators and leaders. Additionally, because we highlight educators and leaders who are using STEAM practices in the field, participants are fully engaged and excitedto be learning from their peers.
Our approach to this professional learning environment is through a virtual event space that will be provided by ON24, a global webinar-based platform to enhance participant engagement. The virtual event space is set up as a 3-D conference center, with an auditorium to watch keynote presentations and breakout rooms for sponsors and exhibitors.All information is archived on a dedicated website after the event for 1 full year.
Early Registration is available from November 1-15, 2014 at $85.00 per person.
Regular Registration is available from November 15, 2014 to January 30, 2015 at $99.00 per person.
