Live Webcasts

For the 2016 event, we’re adding live webcasts of two of the scheduled sessions: SUAS for STEAM Education: Small Drones for Safe Projects, and Let’s Get Building! Using MinecraftEdu in the Primary Classroom. They will be free of charge and can be used for PD or EILA credit, subject to school district approval.

KET will email certificates of participation to those who register to view the live webcasts and fill-out a follow-up questionnaire. Certificates can then be presented to a school district office for PD/EILA credit.

After the live events, KET will archive the webcast videos on this page for viewing but will not issue certificates of participation. Ask your local school board office how you might receive credit for viewing the webcasts after the event.
