NECC Day one

I could learn to love PBSkids! There were so many cool learning tools that we were shown today from Fetch to Engineering Challenges to engage students in learning and problem solving. Don't you love it when kids learn while they are having a good time!? Almost tricks them into thinking that they are not really learning.

Oh yeah, I did attend two other sessions as well.

NECC Here I Come!

For the last three years I have attended MICCA in Baltimore. Two of those three years I presented. For the first time, I will be attending NECC in Washington, DC and I cannot wait. The allure of seeing the new technologies for improving student learning is exciting. I am always on the loo-out for new ways to help my students succeed (Yes, I know that school is out and teachers are supposed to be "off"). Hope to see you there!

Why Twitter?

OK...I have a twitter account. I check it and post periodically. I do not get the utility of it. I am following a few people and a few are following me. Tweets? What are they and how are they sent? Does anyone get the utility of this thing? Help!
