Link to my conference Wiki.
This weekend is our state technology conference. Ian Jukes is the keynote speaker Saturday. From the conference website:
The theme of this year’s conference, Technology: The Great Connector , suggests the wide range of influence technology has on learning. Sessions and workshops will reflect this. Topics will include –
Connecting to Curriculum: student use of technology in design: robotics, art, buildings; integration of technology resources into classroom activity
Connecting to Leadership: preventing student plagiarism (defining it and preventing it through use of online websites such as turnitin.com), implementation of technology plans; becoming â€œhighly qualifiedâ€
Connecting to Creativity: student productions (yearbook, newspaper, etc), innovative uses of PowerPoint, ActivBoards, and other tools.
Connecting to Each Other: blogging, using online resources such as think.com
Iâ€™m doing 2 presentations â€“ a 60 minute presentation Saturday called â€œTales From A Model Technology Classroomâ€ (the classroom is a model â€“ we might get there later). And Sunday Iâ€™m doing 2 hours on â€œBlogging and Other Web 2.0 Goodies.â€ Iâ€™m hoping to have a wiki for both presentations done in the next few days.
