We Are Back

There is no doubt that COVID-19 has impacted every facet of our lives. We have been dealing with the complication and alteration in so many ways.

The HSTE Team, made up of many amazing educators from teachers to administrators, took the summer to reflect, restock, and prepare for the school year. We are very excited to recapture the focus and attention on the needs of our fellow educators around the state.

HSTE will be hosting a schedule of Office Hours  to support you in your educational technology needs.

Do You Know Someone
Do you know an educator Making IT Happen? @HSTEorg is looking for nominations for the "Making IT Happen Award" This award honors outstanding educators who demonstrate extraordinary commitment to improving digital learning opportunities for students. 

The Making IT Happen award honors outstanding educators and leaders who demonstrate extraordinary commitment, leadership, courage and persistence in improving digital learning opportunities for students. Since its inception in 1995 more than 600 educators from around the world have received the award.

Distance Learning and Virtual Meetings

As schools prepare for an extended break and distance learning, we at HSTE understand the concern from educators around the islands.

The best advice right now is to stop, take a breath, and then make a plan. We have provided a few links below to help you start making a plan for your transition to a new adventure and style of teaching. Take a moment to look through and use what you can in your complex/school plan of action.

2020 Schools of the Future Conference
The Schools of the Future Planning Committee is pleased announce SOTF Reimagined! Given the ongoing uncertainty presented by the Covid-19 situation, the 2020 conference will be virtual. Additionally, since we are no longer beholden to a physical space, the dates have been changed to Thursday and Friday, October 29 and 30. We are also pleased to offer this year’s conference at greatly reduced registration rates.

The registration rate is for the entire conference and includes all synchronous (live) and asynchronous (pre-recorded) sessions. Register by June 30th to take advantage of the conference relaunch rate.

2020 Leading Schools of the Future Summit

Staying Grounded, Responsive and Inspired

The Schools of The Future Conference is transcending time and space in 2020! The change of format lends itself well to creativity and innovation, while also allowing for more flexible program options. In considering the reimagined conference, our annual Leading Schools Of The Future Summit will be embedded into the 2-day SOTF conference to be held on October 29 and 30. Attendees who sign up for the summit will be able to access additional content and participate in multiple tracks, both features that are not possible with an in-person event.
