Yesterday I hit the wall. In an effort to experience everything the Summer Institute had to offer I have been cutting out sleep. Being a lover of sleep, this became problematic. I spent yesterday dragging myself from one session to another. The sessions were all wonderful and I have so many ideas for next school year. We finished about 5 and I did something totally out of character, I skipped dinner and took a well needed nap.
I woke up just in time for the Maker faire. As a team at our school, we want to start this next year. It was great to be a participant. I brought the classroom worm farm to Nashville, and shared how we used it in our classroom. We even made to-go worm farms. It was great to see people- create, learn, play, and share their passion.
Sessions I attended:
Keynote- Adam Bellow
The presentation was inspiring on so many levels. He makes you think and challenge yourself to be a better presenter, teacher, and human. He showed the video below. Not a dry eye in the house.
The best of Collaboration, Communication, Innovation- Adam Bellow/Steve Dembo-
Augmented Reality- Karen Ogen
Tell your story with the iPad - Dennis Grice
That is so fake, Understanding and Creating Doctored images-Dean Shareski
