Brainstorm 2017 has ended

Welcome to the Brainstorm 2017: Future Ready Students conference website.

PLEASE NOTE:  Using this tool to mark your personal scheduling preferences does not reserve a seat for marked sessions, nor does it register you for the conference.  

We do not plan to have paper programs available on site.
 If you would like a printed program, select the printer icon to the right to print a personal copy.  

Brainstorm 2017 is held in a public space, therefore we do not prohibit participants, exhibitors, sponsors, or news organizations from photographing conference activities. VSTE, SVTC and James Madison University reserve the right to use images taken at the Conference with your photograph and/or likeness on social media and/or in future marketing materials. We are NOT responsible for individual attendee’s use of your image or likeness.

Parking will be available on campus but it is limited. Consider car pooling.

Thank to EN Computers for their support of this event.

Not a Block: Using Tools to Express Creativity

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Sure these blocks look all the same, but when they are treated as individuals they become unique expressions of creativity. How does this sort of open-ended learning experience fit into your work with students?  How do these pedagogical approaches help us inspire and prepare future-ready students who are confident, independent problem-solvers?  Come to this hands-on session ready to build, tinker, and share.
