Are you wondering if VSTE is only an ed tech conference?

The truth is, it’s much more than that. It’s a gathering of several hundreds of educators from around the region who come together to connect, learn, and enhance their skills. Our main objective is not solely on ed tech, but also on fostering exemplary teaching, leading, and learning practices through the use of ed tech.
