Cue Jump5 and “throw your hands up and make some noise … get live and jump for joy” because Share My Lesson’s 2024 Virtual Conference,(March 19-21) is almost here! Whether you are a teacher, paraprofessional, a principal, a school staff member, an education organization professional, or even a parent, you’re sure to find can’t-miss topics from our 36 free, for-credit webinars. Anyone who serves students could benefit from the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) session Trauma Awareness and Resources for Youth-Serving Professionals, or check out AFT’s session Serving the Medically Fragile Child in the School Setting. Plus, we all need to remember to practice self-care, so join AFT staffer Chelsea Prax’s session Be Healthfully Present: Supporting Your Own Well-Being.

SafeBAE’s session Creating a Culture of Consent: Engaging All School Stakeholders in Dating Violence Prevention, Response & School Policy Reform introduces SafeBAE’s 360° Schools model, an innovative and unparalleled approach to enlisting all school stakeholders in preventing and responding to relationship abuse and harassment among secondary students, through a mental health lens.

These aren’t the only engaging sessions in store for you that will have you wondering how the session could be over already. That’s the great thing about this conference: We have been doing virtual conferences for more than a decade, so we have the science of creating engaging, fun and knowledgeable sessions down pat.

And the Share My Lesson team wants you to be ready to dive into the conference, so here is some info to help you get geared up and ready to go:

Choose Your Sessions

With so many sessions being offered, it can be difficult to narrow down your choices. Although you will have to decide which webinars you want to attend live, all sessions will be accessible after they initially air—so you can watch any session on demand later. Get started in choosing your sessions by logging into Share My Lesson, and join the community where, under the “Resources” tab, you will find the sessions organized by the day they are presented and by topics: AI & Media Literacy; Civic Education & ELA; Diversity, Equity & Inclusion; Mental Health & SEL; and STEM. This makes it easy to find the webinars you are interested in.

Note: All of the sessions will be available on demand with closed captioning in English and Spanish after the live broadcast; and if you have already registered, we will email the on-demand link to you.


Share with Your School Team

Learning together is always more fun! Invite colleagues on your team and at your school to register to attend the virtual conference.

Is your school experiencing an influx of newcomers to your student population? If yes, then attend Re-Imagining Migration’s session, Re-Imagining Belonging: Welcoming Newcomers and Creating Community to aid you in creating an inclusive and safe school environment for all.

Or maybe you are looking for a new methodology or tool that promotes creative and critical thinking, self-expression, deductive reasoning, planning, teamwork and decision-making processes? If so, then you won’t want to miss these sessions: Design-Based Learning: Doing Begins Learning and Beyond Roleplay: Using Dungeons & Dragons to Level Up Learning.

Connect with Other Participants

Once you have joined the 2024 Virtual Conference community, head over to the “Discussions” tab and connect with others who are attending. Although the conference is virtual, the SML team strives to provide plenty of opportunities inside and outside of sessions to expand your network and create community. So go ahead, pop into the discussions and introduce yourself, share what sessions you are looking forward to attending and what you are hoping to learn:
