Who Should Attend?
Educators, technology coordinators, TOSAs, administrators and those who are educational mindset leaders should consider attending CUE. Keynotes, sessions and exhibits will be of special value to those involved in all core areas, Title I, School Improvement Program, Data and Assessment, Future Ready, English Language Development (ELD), Special Needs, and GATE. Thousands of teachers, administrators, and other professionals will attend the four-day conference.
The exhibit area features nearly 200 vendor displays of current hardware, software, and other materials related to educational technology. Show hours have been scheduled to allow maximum time for attendees to interact with exhibitors. The Exhibit Hall is open Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Exhibits are open to all attendees and do not require an additional fee. Exhibit Hall Only passes available. Children under 16 are not allowed in the hall.
Concurrent sessions are one-hour, presentations that address all areas of the curriculum and appeal to a variety of teachers. Sessions may be given by a single speaker, team or panel who can address the needs of the novice user of educational technology as well as the more experienced professional.
CUE Rock Star Jam Sessions
- Hands-On Learning – All sessions consist of 90-minute sessions allowing attendees to “dig in deep” and really get to know their topic and build resources to use next year.
- Small Presenter to Attendee Ratios – CUE Rock Star Jam Sessions are built so that there is one presenter for every 20 attendees. This allows participants to get hands-on support and learn directly from knowledgeable educators.
CUE STEAMpunk Playground
The CUE Student-Powered Showcase (SPS) invites attendees to actively participate with students in creating, problem-solving and learning. Attendees may collaborate with students on a robotics or 3D printing project, or they may get down on the floor to figure out how a robot works.
Since 2001, the showcase has featured student technology integrated projects that aligned with the CA state standards. It is organized by a Task Force of innovative CUE members and produced in partnership with the Orange County Department of Education. More information at www.cue.org/showcase.
