Annual Conference 2016: Future-Ready Students

November 30- December 2, 2016

Students need more than core academic content to prepare them for life beyond school. But how do we create this richer, more engaging, more relevant learning environment in our classrooms? At #VASCD16 you will hear from nationally-recognized keynoters, engage with concurrent session presenters from Virginia schools, and add new colleagues to your professional learning network. Prepare for a tremendous learning experience!

Join Lee Crockett, President of the Global Digital Citizen Foundation, to learn the essential elements of high-quality project-based learning; and meet faculty from Virginia schools using a variety of approaches to PBL.
