2020 Fall Conference Keynote Speaker

Corinne Hoisington

The 58th Annual IBEA Conference – “Align, Integrate, and Strengthen with IBEA” is approaching and it will be virtual.  Corinne Hoisington, our featured presenter will be assisting the planning committee in setting up the virtual conference using Microsoft Teams.     

Corinne Hoisington is a full-time professor of Information Systems Technology at Central Virginia Community College 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 Camp 21 International Events, Cengage Learning, Capital One International Bank, Executive LIVE in London, Wellington, Sydney, Johannesburg, and the international South by Southwest (SXSW) event in Austin, Texas. Professor Hoisington is the recipient of the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional award in Computer Programming. Corinne has authored over thirty textbooks with Cengage Learning/National Geographic on topics such as Android Studio Boot Camp, Dreamweaver Creative Cloud, Outlook 2019, Office 365, Microsoft Windows, 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 archaeology — they should ‘be’ archaeologists. 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.

As the featured presenter, Professor Hoisington will be IBEA’s opening presenter.  She will also provide three sessions on how to move forward with remote learning, as well as being our closing presenter.  Her focus will be on using Microsoft Teams to provide students with engaging learning opportunities.  She is looking forward in interacting with you at our annual conference. IBEA is fortunate to have Professor Hoisington with us this year.
