Eeeek! Five days without any internet access to speak of! I left my bag of power cords and chargers at home on Tuesday as I headed out the door for the South Carolina EdTech Conference in Greenville this week! I guess attending a technology conference and not being able to use any gadgets once the batteries died is just one of life’s little ironies!
I did soak up some fabulous information though, and thanks to old-fashioned pen and paper I was able to take notes on everything. I’m working on my conference report now, which is not only a great way to share my experience with my principal, but also helps me to clarify what I learned. (I should have it posted online tomorrow or Monday.)
I’m also catching up on some of the sessions I missed due to scheduling conflicts by visiting Edmodo. Each presenter was asked to upload his/her presentations, handouts, links, etc to Edmodo, and attendees were given a list of codes to join any or all of the groups. Big thanks to the presenters who have uploaded your resources already!
I’m disappointed that I didn’t get to “tweet” or “blog” the conference this year, but I’m excited about some of the ideas I’ve brought back with me, and I’m looking forward to sharing with my teachers and students.Image: ‘Recharging‘
