It is my hope that you had a rewarding and happy holiday season and with a slight twist on the phrase I am wishing you a Merry New Year. If you follow the work of VSTE then you are already aware of some of the merriment we have in store for the first few months of 2023.
We are very eager to participate in a webinar Thursday, January 26th at 2:00 PM with our good friends from LearnPlatform. You can register for this event at go.learnplatform.com/virginia-edtech
February opens up with our collaborative conference event with VASCD. The Power of Coaching conference was very well received with the first offering reaching capacity which allowed us to offer two other dates for the event. We will gather in Charlottesville, VA on February 7 and 8 and then again on February 23rd northwest of Richmond in Short Pump. You can find out more and register by visiting the Events Page at VASCD.org
February 23rd is also Digital Learning Day and VSTE is partnering with VDOE to plan events and opportunities to celebrate digital learning every day in a variety of ways. You can join us on Feb. 8th at 3:00 PM for a Regionally Speaking Webinar hosted by our friends and colleagues at Virtual Virginia. Follow @VSTE & @VirtualVirginia on Twitter for announcements and the meeting link.
March will welcome the EdTechRVA event on the 8th. Be sure to follow @GRAETCorg on Twitter or check back at graetc.org/edtechrva-2023/ to learn more about this annual event and be sure to answer the call for proposals before January 13th at graetc.org/2022/11/edtechrva-2023-call-for-proposals/.
All through the remainder of the winter months, VSTE will be following #VSTEinAction on Twitter to discover what has gone from the conference to the classroom. Post your activities, accomplishments, and successes using the #VSTEinAction. We are eager to see what merriment you have going on in the first quarter of 2023 as well. Each tweet with #VSTEinAction will be entered to win one of 5 monthly prizes between January and March!
Be Merry, Make Good Happen, and Let's Keep in Touch!
Rod Carnill, VSTE Executive Director
