The Reform Symposium #rscon10

Well, it looks like I tricked some people into thinking I know what I'm talking about. I have been asked to present during an on-line conference. The focus of the conference this year is innovation in education and I will be presenting on Integrating Technology into the classroom. My session is on Sunday August 1 at 12:30 EST. My presentation is entitled, Everything I Learned about Tech Integration, I Learned from Movies. I'll be drawing from a couple of older posts and talking about tech integration and what it means to teachers.

I'm excited to be presenting and honored to be in a great group of educators participating in the conference. I've met many of these people at ISTE last month and I'm excited to see their presentations and Keynotes. They have great things to say about education and it's worth stopping by for a listen. I encourage all of you to sign up if you have the time and stop by and see what people have to say about innovation in the classroom. You might find something that changes your entire view of education or just something that will make a single lesson a little bit better for your students. either way, you will walk away with something that will make you a better teacher. Best of all, it's free! Stop by The Reform Symposium website and sign up and look around. Also, here is a video that will do a better job explaining the conference than I did.

I hope this helps answer any questions you might have about the conference. If you still have some, feel free to send me an email or leave a comment and I will get back to you as soon as possible. If you like what you see, please pass it along with the hashtag #rscon10. This will allow everyone to follow the awesomeness that is  going on.

  1. Congrats! Thanks for the info, I look forward to it! :)

  2. Can I steal some of your blog post and cross post it on mine? Im excited to be presenting also. I saw your topic and giggled, I actually taught American History through Film for 3 years, it examined history using popular movies.

  3. Congratulations! I also watched the recorded opening session for ISTE and thought the people who wrote that script must have been reading your blog too. Your reach is further than you know.

  4. Ha! Tricked. Silly The Nerdy Teacher. Haven't you figured out your genius yet? You connect teachers to technology in a way that is accessible and comfortable, by connecting it to what they already know!


Please post your thoughts here. Thanks!
