And every session is 100% actionable in your classroom. All surrounding one of the hottest topics in education: Arts Integration and STEAM.

WATCH ANY OR ALL SESSIONS
With only 6 hours during the live day conference, it’s tough to provide enough sessions for everyone. That’s why we’re adding an entire content and grade-specific library of sessions to our on-demand site. So you can view sessions that meet your unique needs and learn how to integrate with others in one, convenient conference.
We’ll be sharing 15 general sessions during the live conference event and another 15+ sessions in each content area (classroom teachers, administrators, art, music, theater, and dance) and grade level in our on-demand site. Two full days of presentations for one low price.
CONTINUOUS LEARNING: 10 HOUR PD CERTIFICATE
As a professional, you are taking the initiative to grow. You should get credit! That’s why we’re proud to provide our attendees with a PD certificate for 10 hours. If you attend live, you’ll receive it at the end of the day. If you watch it on-demand, we’ll send it to you after you view and comment on ANY 15 sessions.
Remember, you have access to everything for a full year, so if you can’t make it on the day of the conference – you’re covered.

My first experience with an online conference and it was by far the best day ever! I enjoyed it so much that I will be registering at the next conference in July! Very informative and enjoyable!
This was my second Connectivity conference, and both have given me tons of ideas to implement right away in my own classroom, and to share with my colleagues. It has been a great way to supplement my PD hours with high-quality and truly arts-focused information. Absolutely worth the time!
This conference leaves you energized with ideas to run with right away as well as many things to explore and develop, feeding your passion as a life’s-long learner.
I enjoyed the conference. I picked up some new information and additional ideas for lesson integration.
Very engaging conference day for this STEAM newbie!
