STE Annual Summer Conference 2013
2013 Theme: Teaching and Learning in Action
Action is Eloquence -William Shakespeare
"Teaching and Learning in Action" takes place in classrooms where teachers and students are working together to make learning happen. Various strategies and programs emphasize student-centered learning in which students have choice, make decisions about their own learning, participate in authentic projects, and seamlessly use technology tools. Approaches such as project-based learning, leadership programs, flipped classrooms, action research, bibliotherapy and makerspaces will be highlighted. Service-learning and other research-based strategies will make excellent topics for sharing at this practical, teacher-friendly conference. Our actions as engaged and innovative educators ensure that we will teach with eloquence!
This one-day conference will feature two general sessions, learning stations, concurrent sessions, and makerspaces. Lunch and a continental breakfast will be provided by the conference. Door prizes will be given at the general sessions (must be present to win).

Free Maker Spaces Sessions NEW!
NEW! This year we will have one and a half hours after lunch for workshops and makerspaces. Makerspaces are open labs where people with common interests gather to share resources, knowledge, and make something (sort of like the old make-and-take workshops). We will have several Maker Spaces for different topics. All materials will be provided. Registration is free but space is limited to 10 people for each Maker Space. There will also be technology workshops during the afternoon session.
