Looking Forward to IL-TCE

This morning, I was trying to remember how many times I have attended the Illinois Technology Conference for Educators (IL-TCE). I know that I attended at least six of them as a part of the Video Etc., Education Alliance, Advanced Technology Workgroup teams, plus twelve out of the last fifteen years that I have been here at North Shore. I am figuring that it is at least 18 or 19 years.

This year, however, will be special. I am participating as a Spotlight Speaker. My topics this year are “Personal Learning Networks – Engaging the Adult Members of Your Community” and “Cultivating Global Collaborations”. I both excited and nervous about the presentations. On Thursday, I am presenting in the Amphitheater Main Stage, where I have hung on the words of Will Richardson, Tim Wilson, Larry Anderson, and Steve Dembo in the past. I only hope that I am half as good at inspiring others as those whom I have seen there in the past. A challenge that I am looking forward to.

  1. Vinnie, I am sure your presentations will be as compelling as those whose words you have hung on before. You are passionate about what you are speaking on, that is what will make it successful you are speaking on something you believe strongly in. I am looking forward to participating in the sessions you do.
