What is ExploraVision and How Can I Use It?
All web seminar participants use online tools that allow them to mark-up presenter's slides or share desktop applications in addition to engaging in chat with others online and answering poll questions

This Web Seminar took place on September 15, 2010, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time. Presenting was Stacey Lamb, second grade teacher at Willow Grove Elementary in San Diego, CA, and Brian Short from NSTA. The presenters gave an overview of the ExploraVision competition and some tips and guidelines for a successful beginning.

The presenters provided information about the basic elements of the ExploraVision competition and what teachers can expect. Stacey Lamb, a veteran of the competition, shared her personal experience with entering teams in the competition while addressing the general guidelines for application and preparation. Miz Fischer from Toshiba assisted on the chat, and the participants were able to get all their questions answered.


Twenty-eight (28) participants were present at the live Web Seminar in addition to the presenters and NSTA staff. Participating educators represented the states of Arizona, Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Kansas, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Texas and Virginia.


Seminar participants received a one year subscription to one of NSTA’s SciGuides and a certificate of attendance was deposited into their My Transcript area in the NSTA Learning Center for completing the evaluation form at the end of the program.


Here are some comments provided by the participants at the end of the Web Seminar:

  • “Gives me to courage to lead my kids on.”
