Dodge City, Kansas (USD 443) is 1:1 with iPads for students and teachers in grades K-12. This past Monday, I had an opportunity to join PBL-guru Ginger Lumen and many other educators in Dodge City for a day of professional development focused on digital literacy and blended learning. We enjoyed two keynotes from Curtis Chandler and Mark Klassen, which were both challenging and thought provoking. Mark is a 2012 high school graduate and currently a cinematographer. He shared the closing keynote at the 2013 Podstock conference in Wichita, Kansas. As I did for my tweets at #EdCampOKC last Saturday, I created a Storify archive of the tweets I shared during both keynotes and at other times during the day on Monday in Dodge City. 46 of these tweets are also available in my personal TweetNest Twitter archive. Resources for my breakout sessions on Monday in Dodge City are also available. I shared workshops on “Digital Literacy” (Mapping Media to the Common Core) and “Creating Enhanced/Multimedia eBooks with Students,”
