Be a Part of ASTE

By Brittnay Bailey

The leaves are changing, the snow is sticking, and it’s time to start thinking about all the different ways you can be a part of ASTE!

ASTE Registration is OPEN! For all you Eager Beavers out there, ASTE registration is ready for you!  Use the code ASTE19EB when registering to get your discount.  Register here, and keep reading to find out how else you can participate with ASTE!


Call for Presenters!  Every year ASTE puts on an amazing conference, which in large part is because of our home-grown presenters!  Alaskan teachers understand the challenges many of us face due to weather, isolation, internet issues, polar bears, etc., which makes it extra imperative that we have people active in their Alaskan classrooms sharing their knowledge!  Presentations can be ½ hour, 1 hour, 2 hour, ½ day (3 hour), or even a full day! Submit your proposal here before October 8th to be considered as a presenter for ASTE!  


IdidaContest Submissions are Open!  Don’t wait until the last minute (like me ¯\_(ツ)_/¯), get your iDidaContest submissions in now!  Dust off your cameras, clean up those podcasts, mash-up your videos, edit your eBooks… you get the idea.  There’s a LOT of talent out there and a lot of categories to enter! Please watch this short YouTube video to find out how we’ve updated the submission process, and when you’re done go here to see all the amazing categories we have for you this year, and when you’re ready, get your entries submitted! It’s never too soon!


Award Nominations!  Is there a teacher or student you know who goes above and beyond, exemplifies what it means to be a leader in technology, and has a positive impact on teaching and learning in Alaska?  Of course there is! Don’t you want the rest of the state to know how awesome they are? We do too! So glad we’re in agreement! Click here to nominate for Student Awards, and here for Leadership Awards, and make sure they’re in by Dec. 14th!


We on the ASTE board are already so excited for the conference, and in all the ways YOU make it as amazing as it is!
