Access to 2022 Content

You do NOT have to take days off for this conference video vault.

You can watch the sessions on your own time. Please note that there are some deadlines for the PD credits, depending on the option you choose. You’ll find those details in the FAQ about continuing education/ professional development credits.


Access to Pop-Up Facebook Group

The pop-up Facebook group will be archived Sept. 5, 2022. At the time it is archived, group members will continue to be able to access and search the group, but no new members, posts or comments can be added.

No problem! We’re going “beyond” elementary this year. You will find a lot of content applies to secondary teachers and homeschoolers.

You can see the recommended grade levels for each session on the images and in descriptions when you scroll up on the page.

Nope! The sessions are hosted on our conference platform. You will receive a special login when you register.

All live sessions will be simultaneously streamed to our Facebook group and on YouTube.

Attendees can choose the platform to watch the live streams, though only Facebook provides real-time closed captions.

Replays of live sessions will be hosted on the conference site (with closed captions), so you can watch later if you miss them live on Facebook or YouTube.

Because the Video Vault is accessible immediately upon purchase, we will not approve refunds except under special circumstances, on a case-by-case basis.
