SITE Update—Autumn 2014

Another item from Tuesday’s inbox…

Hello SITE Members!

I wanted to send another update to you at this very important time of year in the SITE calendar.

SITE 2015 in Las Vegas!

First and foremost, please note the submission date for the SITE 2015 Conference in Las Vegas, NV proposals is Thursday, October 23 and that day is rapidly approaching!

I already am excited about what a great conference we are going to have in Las Vegas in March, but I encourage you to be active in the SITE community now.

➢ Submit proposals at

➢ Sign up to be a reviewer at

➢ Complete your Academic Experts profile at .

➢ Contribute to the conversation at

Update: National Technology Leadership Summit

After proposals are due, work continues for SITE reviewers and SIG leaders toward final decisions for what’s sure to be a wonderful 2015 conference program in Las Vegas! I encourage you also to consider submitting a proposal in the Full Proposal (Edited Book) category. Acceptance in this category will allow your paper to be considered for publication in the Research Highlights in Technology and Teacher Education book published in the EdITLib Digital Library ( ). This publication carries the same weight as a journal publication.

On September 24-26, 2014, SITE hosted the National Technology Leadership Summit ( ) at the American Association for Colleges of Teacher Education headquartered in Washington, DC. At this summit, 12 education association presidents including the Association for Mathematics Teacher Education (AMTE), the Conference on English Education of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE), School Science and Mathematics (SSM), the Association for Educational Communications and Technology (AECT), the Teacher Education Network of the International Society for Teacher Education (ISTE), and the International Technology and Engineering Education Association (ITEEA), just to name a few, as well as other leaders in education technology and teacher education met in strands to consider three current topics in technology and teacher education.

The first strand focused on using technology to enhance Informal Learning. The second strand was focused on Personalized Learning, including the role of wearable devices in education. The third strand considered educational implications of the Make to Learn movement and focused on using 3-D printing to reproduce American inventions to create integrated STEM lessons and curriculum in association with the Smithsonian National Museum of American History. All three of these strands will have sessions at SITE where you can learn more about what was discussed and how to get involved.

I hope to see you all at SITE 2015 in Las Vegas!
