ICE Cold Mini Conference

I had a wondrful time at the ICE COLD Spring Mini-Conference this morning despite the April snow and downright blustery day. The event was packed, the information was interesting and relevant, and there was a lot of excitement everywhere.

Kudos to the organizers of this well organized and fun annual event!. $5.00 was quite a bargain!

Here are a couple of resources from this fun-filled morning of learning:

Unpacking the Common Core: Digital Tools to Support the Academic Vocabulary Shift
This is the session I presented:

Literacy and the Common Core Standards

You will find the LiveBinder created by Dawn Sayer to be a very useful resource. I really enjoyed listening to Dawn's innovative teaching ideas and learning the ways she uses some of the same tools in efficient and effective ways. Good stuff here!
