Spring CUE went virtual this past week – the first time in its 42-year career. Not only is it remarkable to think that this annual conference (that boasts bringing roughly 5,000 educators together) managed to take it online – but did so in a matter of weeks. CUE mobilized their staff and the dozens of presenters who were slated to present in-person in Palm Springs and got them connected and ready to present online to the masses.

Virtual Spring CUE began on Friday, March 20th and will take place over the next two weeks on both weeknights and weekends. Registration fees are covered if you were previously registered to attend this year’s conference in Palm Springs; for those that did not register, you still have time to do so! Registration fees are $75 to attend the virtual conference and gain access to recorded sessions. To register, click here!

These sessions will be recorded via Zoom. Keynotes and Featured Speakers will be featured on Friday nights from 7-9pm and Saturday afternoons on Facebook Live. Among the featured speakers who spoke this past weekend were educator Ben Cogswell, famed sketchnoter Sylvia Duckworth, and SEL extraordinaire Crystal Chavez. Their recorded sessions are available on the current YouTube playlist here.

Speaker sessions are typically running between 4pm-7pm each evening and on Saturdays from 1-7pm. If you’ve registered for the event, you are likely receiving daily emails with the session line-up. There are no shortages in topics and multiple sessions are being offered for each time slot.

If you’ve previously registered for the Spring CUE conference and want to see what this digital learning opportunity is about, make sure to download the CUE Event App on your mobile device (Apple users check here and Android users check here.) Once downloaded and logged in, users will have access to the sessions by clicking on the session’s Zoom link, included in the session’s description.
