The YDAS concept started in 2007 and provides an innovative way for a variety of presenters including educators, CO leadership, business partners, community agencies, local colleges and universities and consultants to share expertise on a variety of topics. It also gives faculty and staff choice in selecting sessions pertinent to their interests and content area expertise. The event has proven to be effective, easily replicable, cost effective and sustainable.
This year the event was held at East Rockingham High School with sessions like Connecting Reading and STEM, Historical Bus Tour of eastern Rockingham County, Meet and Greet with School Board and Superintendent, Creating a Community of Readers: Book Trailers Made Simple With iMovie App, Interactive Achievement, Virginia Naturally, Tech Tools for the Classroom, Reading in Math Class: Using Children's Literature to Build Conceptual Understanding, Google, Tips and Tricks for your iMac, Discovery Education and many more.
