The Road Ahead

I've neglected to mention some of conferences I'll be at this year for presentations. If you're around, please stop by and introduce yourself.
  • Friday, October 8: WA ArtsTime
  • Saturday, October 9: WA Council for Social Studies Cross Current
  • Friday, October 15: WA Library-Media Association
  • Thursday, December 9 - Friday, December 10: WA Educational Researchers Association
  • Wednesday, March 2 - Friday, March 4: Northwest Council for Computers in Education in Portland, OR
  • Saturday, March 19 - Sunday, March 20: WA Science Teachers Association (tentative)
  • Saturday, March 26 - Monday, March 28: ASCD Annual Conference in SF
This is a rather diverse list. The first three represent new conferences for me, which I find very exciting. Now that I have a foot planted in educational technology, it means I have a foot planted in most content areas. Interestingly enough, I have no presentations on grading scheduled (yet). All but the ed research conference and ASCD will have me focusing on the new EdTech Assessments. However, I am rolling out a new presentation on "Cell Phones for Data Collection and Research" presentation this year. That proposal is out to three conferences and confirmed for one---and I will share more about that session tomorrow. The NW computer conference and ASCD will include my presentations on data visualization for the classroom---with the computer conference being a 3-hour hands-on workshop.

I like being with educators, so these upcoming opportunities really are among the highlights of my year. I hope to see some of you at one or more of these events!
