Playground Sessions at ISTE Today

Today I am excited to share 2 EdTech Coach Playground Sessions at #ISTE2015. In a last minute attempt to make sure everyone can quickly get to my handouts I used the goog.gly bookmarklet to create a shortened url and a QR code with the click of a button.

Join Our Global ThingLink Teacher Challenge

With just a few short days until the official launch of the 2nd ThingLink Summer Teacher Challenge, I am pleased to announce that nearly 200 educators from 18 countries have signed up to participate.  This will be a great opportunity to build our personal learning networks globally and grow as educators as we create and share a useful set of resources. Use of an EDU Premium, district level organization account will streamline the collaboration as we share a full featured workspace.

Presenting Virtually at Superior Tech 4 Teachers

I had the opportunity to present at the Superior Tech 4 Teachers conference on last week. Although I would have loved to present in person, my presentation was shared virtually through a Google HangOut this time.

While I shared my ideas and interactive presentation with a room full of educators, the amazing Jennifer Williams facilitated the session live at the conference. This picture was taken during the session and shared via Twitter. I was able to take a peek into the room immediately following the presentation. This one picture helped me see that there were participants on the other end and they were engaged and following along on their own devices. This one picture made the experience real to me.

Rounding Up a Community of Learners with the ThingLink Teacher Challenge
