February 11, 2019

ITEEA recently took part in the Virginia Children's Engineering Convention, which took place February 7-8 in Roanoke, VA.

Each Children's Engineering Convention has three major components: 1) staff development for K-5 teachers focusing on strategies that assist children to create, use and control technology, 2) teacher demonstrations of techniques for infusing design, engineering, and technology activities into the Standards of Learning, and 3) a showcase of technology-based educational resources. In addition to the special interest sessions/workshops, other opportunities will include educational vendor exhibits and keynote speakers during each general session.

Keynote speakers were Dr. James Lane, Virginia Superintendent of Public Instruction, Dr. Yvonne Spicer, ITEEA President and Mayor of Framingham, MA and Cas Holman of Heroes Will Rise.
