About the Event

Combining the Best of Virtual and Face-to-Face Events

The DEN Spring Virtual Conference is a free professional development event for educators to learn about the most effective ways to integrate digital media into their instructional practices. It is unique because of its blended environment. The sessions will be broadcast online, but you can attend either from your own home or at one of the many face-to- face (F2F) events around the world. By attending an event in your area, you get that buzz that can only be experienced by being face to face with others.

The theme for the event is Digital Transformations, a continuation of the conversation began at Future@Now. Presentations will focus on these five tracks:

  • Call to action: Students Speak - These sessions focus on how digital learning is impacting student achievement and ways to incorporate student voices into the digital transformation.
  • Planning your transition: District administration, thought leaders and policy makers - These sessions focus on planning, policy, and strategies revolving around the shift to digital.
  • Creating culture and community of change - These sessions focus on ways educators are fostering communities of practice that maximize opportunities for change to flourish.
  • Leading from the front: Teachers as Leaders - These sessions focus on educators leading digital transformations with practical, concrete ways to transform existing lessons into new models of engagement.
  • Digital by design: Integrating digital resources into the classroom - These sessions focus on ways educators are merging digital resources and instructional methodologies to yield exceptional outcomes.
