Could you do us a favor... could you please send the following to at least one person in your school/district that you think may be a good candidate to attend Vermont Fest.



Vermont Fest Technology Conference is a great venue to explore new ideas for implementing technology in your classroom…  and you are sure to pick up teaching techniques that make integration easier or more manageable.  In addition, you will network with great Vermont K-12 educators who are willing to share their successes and challenges.  


It is a fun filled conference with lots of options for various learning styles.  Do you like to watch and listen… we have that.  Do you like to get involved in energizing (sometimes passionate) educational conversations… got that too.  How about hands-on learning… we have lots of opportunities for that.  How about just getting together with like-minded educators to informally discuss a topic of interest… yep, you will also have those opportunities.  Heck, you can even go to a session in the famous outdoor heated swimming pool… really!!


Our vendors will display the latest in technology innovation and offer services that you may not yet be aware of… and they give out some great gifts and prizes.


You owe it to your self to check out the Program.  Please take a minute and visit the VT Fest site… 


or… go directly to the program…


Here are just a few sample sessions…
