Over the past few days, I've been diving in to work on all things technology as our district hosted a mini-tech conference #APS3T2018 Teach, Tech, Transform. By all accounts, I would say that most participants agreed that our conference was a success. We had around 300 participants join in the learning with us. We were blessed to have Vicki Davis, @CoolCatTeacher, as our Keynote Speaker for Day 1 and @StephanieDonofe for Day 2. They both shared inspiring stories that were woven through their keynote speeches which tugged at the heartstrings of all who listened.
The @CoolCatTeacher shared great advice with us-a reminder to pick three things and innovate like a turtle-slow and steady wins the race. Stephanie's great advice was-keep moving forward no matter what. I will heed the advice and move forward with three things I want to get better at...my first is here-#flipgrid.
I hope to use it as a way for students to review books that they unearth as they participate in our school-wide after school book club when we start back to school. I am looking forward to hearing what they have to say as they review and recommend their books to a friend. It's very exciting to know that we now have a tool that can visually capture students' thinking so they can participate in making their mark on the world.
Thanks to Kristi and Jen for hosting the session and allowing us time to explore the #flipgrid tool. I know I now have flipgrid fever. LOL!
