VSTE kicked off 2024 strong with its first monthly #VSTEinAction Demo Slam webinars on January 3rd. This fast-paced and action-packed virtual slam session was focused around the theme of Accessibility, and featured an impressive lineup of presenters who competed for the prize of the best two minute EdTech presentation. Presenters shared an exciting array of accessibility tools and tips including Orbitnote, Mote, Zipcaptions, Immersive Reader, Diffit and more. Attendees left energized with lots of ideas to take back into their schools and classrooms to make learning more accessible for all students. If you missed it, the full recording can be found on GoOPENVA site along with a link to all resources shared at bit.ly/VSTESLAM01.
The #VSTEinAction Demo Slam webinar series is presented by VSTE’s Education Committee, co-chaired by Tina Coffey and Heather Askea, and will focus on a different educational technology topic each month. Interested teachers, leaders, and coaches are invited to join the line up to present and slam for a prize. These fun-filled and idea-packed sessions are designed with teachers in mind, so join the next slam to learn more great educational technology strategies!
