Planning to Present?

Planning to present? Below is a list of the most sought-after session topics at CUE National and Fall Conferences. We have aligned our topics with CUE. This reason is to have you present your presentation at the affiliate level to help you foster your presentation to possibly submit to CUE for the National Conference if you choose to do so.

  • Leadership & Administration – Site and District Level Planning: Examples might include: Deploying 1:1, prepping a school network for BYOD, Leading change, Future Ready Initiatives, implementing new types of assessments or changing school culture.

  • Online/Blended Learning: These sessions are designed to support and inspire educators in a fully online or blended learning environment or those wishing to deploy an online learning model.

  • Professional Development: This critical topic can be addressed in sessions that are focused on effective deployments of professional development (PD), innovative methods of delivering PD to educators in small or large groups, online or face to face.

  • Professional Learning Communities: Perhaps no single element is changing the way educators learn more than PLCs. Social Media, including Twitter chats, Voxer groups, blogging, and Google Hangouts are reshaping how educators form these self-learning groups. PLCs sessions allow educators to join this stream of thought by sharing PLC techniques or places to join these revolutionary educational social media movements.

  • Cutting-Edge/STEM/New Tools: Attendees of these sessions should leave with exciting new skills and ideas about the very latest development in edtech tools and edtech resources. Examples might include: STEAM/STEM websites and tools, coding and programming, Maker style tools and apps, robotics and 3D printing as well as others.

  • Hands-On Session/Make-and-Take: These sessions focus on websites, apps or tools that can be used widely by educators in subject areas or focus on a single subject area or grade level. Ideally, educators leave these sessions with a new specific skill.

  • Model Lessons and Lesson Design: These sessions focus on Universal Design for Learning, differentiated instruction and/or long-term use of technology, or lesson planning to achieve academic success. Sessions should include sample lessons or classroom workflows attendees can use in their classes.

  • Talking Pedagogy: These sessions present a chance for educators to sit together and discuss issues or share and work in groups in an informal setting. The speaker can choose a single subject for the discussion or a series of subjects.
