Featured Speaker: Corinne Hoisington

Corinne Hoisington is a full-time professor of Information Systems Technology at Central Virginia Community College and a dual enrollment CTE teacher in Lynchburg, Virginia, with more than 25 years of teaching experience. Corinne travels over 200,000 miles a year delivering keynote addresses to college and university professors and K-12 educators in over 70 cities worldwide for customers such as the Microsoft Corporation, Microsoft Canada Camp 21 International Events, Cengage Learning, ByteSpeed, Capital One International Bank, Executive LIVE in London, Sydney, and Johannesburg, and the international South by Southwest (SXSW) event in Austin, Texas.

Corinne has authored over 30 textbooks with Cengage Learning/National Geographic on topics such as Outlook 2019, Office 2019, Microsoft Windows, Android Boot Camp Java, Technology Now, and Visual Basic 2017.

Corinne is a thought leader and curriculum specialist for Virtual Reality. Corinne believes that VR & AR are game changers in education today. The pedagogies of constructivism and immersive learning show that students learn best by doing or by being. So they shouldn’t just read about history — they should ‘be’ historians. They shouldn’t just study archeology — they should ‘be’ archeologists. Let’s raise the next round of inventors through the discovery of a 3D world.

Technology infused pedagogy has the power to transform teaching & learning. We can now create deeper and authentic learning using digital resources such as virtual reality and artificial intelligence that are now available to both teachers and students. It’s never been a more exciting time for teachers to explore and for schools to stay connected with accessible and current technology to nurture student engagement and success.
