Welcome to the 2014 USTA Conference!!!

Utah Valley Convention Center - Provo, UT

We have worked hard to make sure that there is something for every science teacher at every hour of the conference.  Please make sure that after a breakout session you take the time to fill out a survey.  Every survey you fill out is an entry into our raffle for some great prizes to use in the classroom and on your free time.

Engagement is recognized as a fundamental ingredient of meaningful learning, but how to reliably achieve it is a difficult question. Reflecting on three years' experience making science videos on YouTube, involving many discussions with students and the public, I will highlight the keys to actively engaging learners. I will also share data from my PhD on designing effective multimedia segments for conceptual learning. These data underline the central importance of alternative conceptions and how they can be used to promote conceptual change.
