Kodiak Island Virtual Learning Conference: MAKE it Happen, June 1-3 (Kodiak)

The Kodiak Island Virtual Learning Conference is for educators and administrators across the state of Alaska who are focused on virtual/distance/blended/online learning.  This conference is also a valuable experience for educators who are focused on STEM related content or who are looking to move their content/instruction to an online or blended learning platform. This year AKTEACH is pleased to welcome GCI School Access as a sponsor and presenter. The Kodiak Island Virtual Learning Conference’s theme this year is MAKE it Happen! This theme speaks to integrating STEM/STEAM related, hands-on activities into the virtual/distance/blended/online learning classroom. There has been a recent surge of interest in the “maker culture” experience and this conference offers educators and administrators the opportunity to participate and play in STEM/STEAM hands-on projects. AKTEACH will be hosting 5 presentation/workshop strands this year.

  • Educators can take the conference for continuing education credit for  the course fee of $45.00.
