It has been awhile since I have published anything via this channel and with the demise of Google Reader and the seemingly slow demise of RSS (which I hope I am misreading), fewer and fewer of you may actually find these posts.
While I have not been publishing, I have been extremely busy and sharing tidbits of what is upcoming in my life through other social media channels, primarily Facebook and Twitter. Via IFTTT.com, I am going to have to make sure that these posts are visible to through may other channels.
This morning, on the first day of summer vacation, if an administrator on a 12 month contract had a summer vacation, I have been fortunate enough to be invited by Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning at St. Andrew’s Episcopal School to be one of the keynote speakers for their new Emerging Technology and the Learning Brain Conference. Over the course of the next two and a half days, I will be presenting alongside Dr. Jay Giedd from Johns Hopkins University, Elizabeth Helfant from MICDS, and Phyllis Klein, founder of FabLab DC. This is quite an honor.
I hope to be able to have some time to share what I have learned from this conference plus what I have shared. I also, hearby resolve to share with you soon about the two major initiatives I am leading at my school, the new technology planning framework, and other thoughts and ideas I have “clipped” that I am hoping to share with you.
