Announcing the 2015 Student Technology Conference!

A Virtual Conference By Students, For Students (and teachers too!)

Connecting the World One Student at a Time!

The Marymount School of New York's Student Technology Leadership Team and our network of student technology teams are pleased to announce the 2015 Student Technology Conference, a free, virtual conference that brings together students from around the world to talk about educational technology, collaborations and innovation. This conference will be held online on Saturday, January 31, 2015 from 9 AM to 9 PM, NYC Time.

Check out our conference website!

Our Kickstarter campaign supports the following aspects of the conference:

  • Website design and hosting
  • Support for YouBookMe (conference scheduling software)
  • Support for Blackboard Collaborate (conference presentation software)
  • Consulting Fees (thank you Steve and Lucy!)

Risks and challenges

The planning of this conference has been a challenge, albeit a rewarding one. The student co-coordinators at the Marymount School of New York have worked diligently with the following schools - the University School of Milwaukee; Mercy High School in Michigan; Westhampton Middle School on Long Island; the Dwight School in Manhattan; and the American School of Bombay - to develop a call for proposals and to seek keynote speakers. All of our presenters and keynotes are students in grades 6 through 12.

Our biggest challenge is executing the conference. Students will be presenting virtually from all across the globe. Coordinating all of those presentations, providing training for the presenters, offering moderators for each session truly requires a team effort on our end. This is a huge undertaking!
