One down, one to go…So Long #ISTE13 hello #21stMSC

So my brain is still buzzing with after effects of the ISTE conference earlier this week!  I have been pretty inspired and have worked on things and ideas every day since.  Kristina and I bounced ideas off of each other the entire trip home and came of with some good ones.  We also have several stellar ones percolating in the back of our brains 🙂

Now, I am packing it up for the Model Schools Conference in DC.  Pretty excited for this one!  But one huge difference between this conference and the ISTE one: no wifi in the conference building *except* for designated areas….What the heck!?  How can I collaborate with my peeps if I can’t get an internet connection, except for certain places…Grumble….ISTE wasn’t perfect, but I was connected more than I wasn’t.  Enough of this, I will just be sure to save a few open docs locally and upload them when I get the chance.

Connectivity issues aside, I am looking forward to more learning!  There is not enough good professional development opportunities build into the school year.  Yes there are meetings and usually someone does something cool, but to have the opportunity to hear from schools that are rocking in education is really exciting to me.  I feel like I always pick up a few things that I can modify for my classroom to make it even stronger!  Heading out tomorrow and super excited!

Be sure and tune in for the Day 1 Recap tomorrow…from the nation’s Capital!map_of_washington-dc


About Scott

My name is Scott. After 18.5 years as a high school math teacher in public education I have made the move to become a full time PhD student. This decisions was difficult, but has been one of the most rewarding things that I have ever done. Teaching in high school was an incredible experience for me, so leaving an environment that I loved for the unknown was a challenge. As I high school teacher, I taught almost every math course that could be offered. I was able to earn National Board Certification in Young Adult Math. I was honored as my building Teacher of the Year, no mean feat at Edmond Memorial High School!! My career changed as I became fascinated with educational technology and all of the things that it can do for teachers. I flipped my class. I used iPads and blogging (in high school math!!). I started using gamification and mastery learning. I changed my practice. I chose to go back to school to learn as much as I could. To bring that knowledge from academia and research to the teacher on the front line. I have had the opportunity to present at several conferences and share what I have learned with others. Its through these connections that we can be the best teachers we can for our students. They deserve it and we sell ourselves short when we don't give it. I love talking with teachers about change. About incorporating educational technology. About the power that they have to change lives. My blog space is me, it shares my passions and frustrations, my joys and my learnings. If you are interested in what I am studying, please visit my graduate school pages. If you are interested in the flipped classroom, I have some links to get your started. I would love to meet you! Do not hesitate to reach out! I would enjoy the opportunity to work with your staff or trade ideas with your teachers - let me know! Have a great day! #BeBrilliant
