News and Upcoming Appearances
The Annual ISTE conference last month in Philadelphia was a wonderful experience for me. In addition to presenting two sessions and receiving an award, I was asked to speak at the Kickoff Event on Sunday Evening. It was truly an honor and a privilege.
I used TubeChop to select the portion of the event where I got to share a little about what I do and why and you can watch it here
But more importantly than presenting or getting awards was the experience itself of being with over 15,000 educators passionate about educational technology and what it can do for students and teachers in their lives. It was so great to meet old friends and make new ones and that is what face-to-face conferences are all about!
I will be presenting at several upcoming conferences throughout the country including:
Curriculum Mapping Institute is a wonderful conference run by Heidi Hayes Jacobs. I will have the pleasure of presenting some tools teachers can use to upgrade their curriculum maps on July 14th.
The #140conference edu (August 2nd/3rd) This unique conference dreamed up by the fabulous Jeff Pulver gives users of social media a voice for ten minutes each to share their vision of how social media impacts education and "the state of now". I am excited to be part of this year's conference and the sessions should all be streamed live as well as there being a healthy back-channel on Twitter.
On November 19th I will be Keynoting at the Tri-State Educational Technology Conference. This year the conference will be held at NYU and if last year was any indication of how great this event will be, than it is one you will not want to miss if possible. The conference theme is "Learning without Boundaries"
In December I will be giving the Spotlight Address to close out the Virginia State Technology in Education Conference. Even though it is some months away, I am greatly looking forward to it.
I am also currently available for Keynote or Spotlight Presentations on educational technology which can be tailored to fit a specific audience or theme.
