More on ISTE: the Feud, the Forum, the Final Keynote (updated with slides)

Who says panel discussions can’t be fun? After the seriousness and pressure of preparing for my TEDxPhillyed talk on Saturday (more on that in a future post), several good friends and I presented the Learning Tools Family Feud at ISTE.  Click on the Unlocking Potential image below to view the hour-long session. Perhaps we did […]

Everyone is talking apps, but . .

At ISTE11 everyone is talking about powerful apps for learning. Apps for creating art and music and for publishing.  Remarkable apps for special education.   And apps for research. Educators here are discussing the powerful role mobile devices and apps can play in student research.  But no one is talking about library apps. No one […]

My big duh (and Patrick Larkin on reinventing PD)

At TeachMeetNJ yesterday, I attended Patrick Larkin’s session, Professional Development Doesn’t Have to be an Oxymoron. Patrick described some of his PD strategies as the Principal at Burlington (MA) High School, (see his post A Professional Development Day that Worked and the Google Doc for the session), and engaged the rest of the participants in […]

NCCE TL Summit

Those TLs in the great Northwest are shaking things up! Don’t miss the UStream broadcasts of some of the highlights of Wednesday’s TL Summit, part of this week’s Northwest Council for Computer Education (NCCE) Conference, in Portland. I am including a couple of my choices of most inspiring moments. Mike Eisenberg provocatively questions some of […]

Consider ISTE & our SIG! A repost of Doug’s ISTE SIGMS alert

While I am already overplanning events and sessions of all flavors, I wanted to highlight some events […]

educon 2.3 and our Rocks/Sucks Research Edition

I spent the weekend downtown at Educon 2.3.  This is one of my favorite conferences.  I love the power-shiftiness of this event.  How conversations engage most anyone who wants to participate.  How very smart educators connect across age level specialties and disciplines to discuss how we might work together to make schools better, to help […]

Personal reflections on SLJSummit10

I returned home from the SLJ Summit late last night.  I had a great time in Chicago.  And it would be easy to simply return with fond memories of time spent with old and new friends.  The two days were packed with learning experiences and fun. I am still working through that learning and I […]

From a distance: ISTE looks almost as good

So you didn’t make it to Denver? The next best thing? ISTEVision. I am truly blown away by what ISTE shares for those of us who may not have caught everything and those of us who never got there. Among the many sessions I am looking forward to either experiencing or re-experiencing: David Warlick’s Cracking […]
