We had a great turnout for the Oklahoma City Public School’s annual “Tech Day” conference, held at US Grant High School in southern OKC today. I had fun live-blogging Tammy Worcester’s keynote, “Beyond Copy and Paste: Building Integrated Technology Projects.” Tammy is a wonderful presenter and her message really resonated with the diverse group of K-12 teachers here in Oklahoma City. It’s always challenging to address a K-12 audience with widely varying technology skill levels, and Tammy did a great job. She is a learning consultant with ESSDACK in Hutchinson, Kansas.
Here are the wiki links from my three sessions today. My 8 year old daughter, Sarah, helped run our Ustream webcasting setup all day and recorded the first session. Sarah also helped me co-present our final session today about our family learning blog, “Learning Signs,” and did a super job presenting and teaching as well. My relatively new (and relatively inexpensive) Nady wireless mic worked GREAT, and Ryan Collins is my hero for his comment on Sunday solving the mystery of the timing out Sony Digital 8 camcorder: Removing the tape made the camera stay on all day long without interruption! Yeah!
Powerful Ingredients for Blended Learning (updated fairly extensively since my May 16th workshop at ESC16 in Amarillo)
We didn’t add links yet to our wiki page for our Family Learning Blog presentation, but we will before this session is repeated at NECC in Washington D.C. on June 30th. Many thanks to Dawn Danker for co-presenting today and sharing how she’s been using Ustream with her son for him to share video-based book reports with a global audience! 🙂
