    VSTE Followers,

    Now that the conference has concluded, we invite all to continue discussing how instructional technology is used to promote the instructional achievement of all of the students we serve. Post comments, links, and resources as you come across to continue the conversation until the next time we meet in Virginia Beach where "All Hands Will Be On Deck"!

    Happy Holidays!

    VSTE is pleased to publish the printed program for this year's conference. In addition, we are providing the Edmodo codes for each of the sessions that can be found using the Google Doc (VSTE Session Edmodo Codes) provided in this post as well as in the program itself. In an effort to support a "green" conference, we are suggesting that you print the program and or download it directly to your mobile device for easy retrieval. The most up-to-date schedule will be the online version also provided in this post. We look forward in seeing you soon in Roanoke!

    This year's annual conference is but a few days away and we are excited to have our online program (Sched) up and running as a reference. When accessing the program from a mobile device, one can easily download the web app icon to your phone for easy viewing. VSTE is also pleased to inform everyone that we will be using Edmodo for a second year in a row. We look forward in seeing you in a few weeks at the beautiful Hotel Roanoke!
    • Mrs. Miller - Thanks for the info. Can't wait for this year's conference!

    @VSTE Will any of the Virtual VA Conference be put online somewhere? I missed a session that I really wanted to see. Thanks!

    Would anyone know the site for the 'hold up 1, 2 or 3 fingers' game that was played at the end of the VSTE conference for door prizes? I don't know the actual name of the game but depending on how many fingers you help up and what was displayed on the screen, you sat down if it wasnt the number you indicated or kept standing. It was alot of fun and I thought that would be a great way to have drawings for small prizes at my school.
