Today is the first day of the conference, actually the pre-conference. This morning was met with a new experience. It was my first pre-conference presentation here at NCETC. I had a workshop on using ACTIVboards in the Classroom in the Apple Classroom. I didn't quite have the attendance that I expected, but as I heard others talking no one else did either. The session went well, I think. The six participants seemed engaged and had wonderful input!
As for the rest of the week, I will be looking for ways to improve our 1 to 1 project at North Albemarle. I am currently in a blogging workshop with David Warlick. I hope that this will help shed some light on how we can get our students to interact more with each other and with their teachers. As we implement this 1 to 1, I am constantly looking for new ways of teaching that will not put any unnecessary pressure on the teachers in the classrooms.
Check back later in the week on what I have seen and learned.
