We Can See…at ECOO13

I have just returned from Bring IT Together, this year’s ECOO conference that was held in Niagara Falls.  I really don’t know where to start or how to describe the amazing learning and sharing that took place at this conference.  I have met some incredible people, many whom I have been following on Twitter and was able to have some face-to-face time talking and learning with them.  I have also made 26 new connections which, thanks to Twitter, will only grow stronger with time. I was inspired by the keynotes and presentations of many of my colleagues.  I learned of many new programs and tools I can now utilize in my school to help kids learn. I also got a ton of new ideas on how to incorporate technology into lessons in order to make learning more meaningful to students. One of those is making a “We Can See” book that I was inspired to create based on my experience at ECOO13. It was from a workshop I attended presented by Angie Harrison and Jocelyn Schmidt entitled “We can see…all around the world”.

I have also had the privilege to present to my colleagues about some of the things I’ve learned and done as a tech teacher in the past year and a half. Here is the description of my workshop from Lanyrd:

The turnout for my presentation was better than I expected, given that there were so many amazing presentations going on at the same time, not to mention – lunch. The feedback was very positive and humbling:
