Dean Shareski at ITSC 2010

Dean Shareski is going to be presenting several GREAT sessions about visual literacy, why sharing matters, Twitter, and RSS at the 2010 ITSC conference in Portland, Oregon in February. In this 4 minute YouTube video, Dean gives a preview to his sessions.

What a great teaser video! If I was going to ITSC this year, I’d definitely be hearing from Dean! I love the way Dean chooses non-technical titles for sessions which will clearly have some technical content, but will also be highly accessible to educators who do not necessarily define themselves as “techies.” “Get Visual,” focusing on visual literacy and digital storytelling, is a brilliant session title, as is “Your Kindergarten Teacher Was Right: Sharing Matters.”

We all need to share more of our learning journeys, and I look forward to hearing more from Dean even though I won’t be at ITSC this year in person!

Here’s a video of Dean’s session on sharing from the 2009 Palm Beach Educational Technology Conference:

    Thanks Wes,

    I thought the idea of asking presenters to provide this type of information in video format is a great idea and I’m sure will help people make informed decisions about how to spend their time. It’s similar to the teasers done by K12 Online. It would be great if more conferences adopted this concept.
