The 2015 Student Technology Conference (StuTech 2015), a student-organized global conversation about technology in education, takes place Saturday, January 31st from 9am - 9pm US-Eastern Standard Time. This online event (held in Blackboard Collaborate) is open to all and will feature student keynote speakers and conference presentations by students in grades 6-12. We hope you will join us for some or all of the day’s sessions, and please let your students, friends, and colleagues know about it.

StuTech 2015 provides an international forum for presentation, discussion and sharing of educational technology in schools and other academic settings. The conference--with presentations by students in grades 6-12 but for an audience of students, teachers, administrators, and anyone else--is committed to:
  • Fostering a better understanding of how students use technology in education and to engage students, teachers and administrators in a conversation about technology;
  • Assisting teachers and administrators in understanding how students use technology both in and out of the classroom;
  • Strengthening the relationship between students, teachers and administrators about technology in the curriculum.
