StuTech 2015 provides an international forum for presentation, discussion and sharing of educational technology in schools and other academic settings. The conference–with presentations by students in grades 6-12 but for an audience of students, teachers, administrators, and anyone else–is committed to:
- Fostering a better understanding of how students use technology in education and to engage students, teachers and administrators in a conversation about technology;
- Assisting teachers and administrators in understanding how students use technology both in and out of the classroom;
- Strengthening the relationship between students, teachers and administrators about technology in the curriculum.
