Day 49 – October 27, 2022 Sharing Ideas

Today I landed in Orlando, Florida getting ready to present at the PLTW Summit for the next three days. I have been to many conferences in the last 30 years. This weekend will be the last one as an APS teacher. I think back to some of my memorable conferences. Some of my favorites were the Technology In Education (TIE) conference in Colorado. I presented at many over the years and had a great time. It was the time when those of us doing technology were at the front of the curve. I especially enjoyed watching and learning from others. Presenting is a joy to share some of my ideas but learning from others far exceeded my expectations. I am in awe of some of the presenters I have seen over the years. I think about how much I was able to translate into activities for my classroom. I think of the advantage my students have had because I was always learning from others. I have said that the day I stop learning is the day I will stop teaching. I am so excited to see what I can learn from others over the next few days.
