Conference Mission Statement
The Conference operates under the following mission statement that was
developed and approved by the planning schools:
The 2016 Student Conference, by students and for all, 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.
Strengthening the relationship between students, teachers, and
administrators about technology in the curriculum.
Assisting teachers and administrators in understanding how
students use technology both in and out of the classroom.
The four schools work collaboratively to plan and execute the
conference. Regular conference calls are hosted by the planning schools
on a rotating schedule. During these calls we discuss:
Potential keynote speakers
Strategies for conference promotion
Updates on social media
Updates on session proposals and acceptances
Committee reports on presenter outreach and volunteer
Fundraising and sponsors
The planning committee also oversees all conference promotion. For
example, students design the conference logo, as shown in Table 1
