Gearing up for @MACUL #MACUL

I'm super excited for my state tech conference (MACUL) this week. Starting Monday, I'll be surrounded by some of the best and brightest Michigan has to offer in the way of educators in technology. I love flipping through the conference book and circling all of the sessions I want to go to, knowing there are not enough hours in the day to do so.

It's funny for me to think that I have been to more ISTE conventions than I have MACULs. I entered the edtech game late and the state conference was not on my radar. Everyone on Twitter was talking about ISTE and that was my only focus. I'm bummed that I didn't attend more MACULs. I really could have learned so much from so many diverse teachers from around this great Mitten.

I have seen that other states have had their conferences and have followed the tweets to catch nuggets of edtech gold. I hope all of you will follow the #MACUL12 tag (Click the link to see the feed) and mine for your own bits of info.

I decided not to present this year because I really wanted to not worry about presentations and focus on going to sessions and learning from others. I will be on a panel with some great friends talking about the many uses of technology in the classroom.

I cannot wait to meet some great friends, share some awesome ideas and have a great time in Grand Rapids.

See all you of there!
