This week I presented at one of my favorite conferences, the Upstate Technology Conference, organized by Greenville County School District.
With such a young baby at home I could not commit to being there all day both days but I did present two sessions each day.
The first day I was excited to present with my favorite special education teacher, Candace. She teaches the profoundly mentally disabled students in our district. We work together very well and collaborate often. After a conversation about how few technology sessions there are for special ed I convinced her to present some of our projects. She is a genius at adapting lessons and tech tools for her students. We had a fun time presenting together and had lots to talk about with the teachers that came to our sessions.
The second day I shared ways that I've utilized infographics with our students. The sessions were well attended and I was able to chat with a few of the book boot camp participants. We even had a mini Twitter lesson between sessions. Thanks Keri, Carmen and Kathy for introducing yourselves and talking with me.
I missed being able to talk to my friends at lunch and missing out on sessions, but I was happy that I was able to still participate this year. Even if it was for a shorter time.
Now I'm looking forward to the first ever Edcamp SC and the Edtech conference this fall.
