Call for Proposals

Are you a classroom teacher who is using instructional technology in an interesting and engaging way?  Are you transforming how technology is used in education?  Are your students creating and sharing their learning in ways that other students and teachers would want to hear about?

The 2018 VSTE Presentations Committee is seeking proposals from educators of all levels and backgrounds. We’re looking for presentations that engage, enlighten, invigorate, transform, or motivate learners and leaders as they integrate technology into education.   Whether you are a first-time presenter or returning presenter, your presence makes a difference and we want to hear from you!


VSTE Co-presenter Policy
VSTE will formally recognize two official presenters for each session.
VSTE will provide the presenter registration rate and gift for these two presenters.

Tips for a Winning Proposal

Use the first few sentences to grab our attention. Be succinct. Your description should include both the tools and ideas you will share, and the technology standards you will be addressing.

There are presentations that apply to general audiences, but many sessions work better when you plan with a specific audience in mind. VSTE serves many different constituent groups and we want to make sure we have sessions that target specific needs, as well as sessions that apply to all.

Think of fun ways to incorporate our theme and help join in the fun of presenting at the VSTE Conference.

Don’t be afraid to take that far-out idea you have been mulling over and turn it into a session description. New and exciting ideas are one of the reasons the VSTE Conference is a great place to be!  The deadline for submission of proposals is September  15, 2018. Don’t wait. Submit your proposal now. Multiple proposals are allowed.
