Over the last few days I have written about Affiliate Assembly at ALA and my favorite ALA Events. While ALA was a seriously busy conference, we did manage to squeeze a little fun in the after hours that weren’t filled with banquets and other ALA sponsored events. Every time we went somewhere we asked our […]

We are still wrapping our head around SCASL’s recent Chicago Trip to ALA. As we reflected at the airport waiting for our flight home, we began listing the wonderful events directly from the conference that we participated in.  I’ve already shared our Affiliate Assembly events, so I’ll focus this post on sessions and the exhibit hall. The following […]

SCASL at ALA Annual Conference 2017

I’m fresh back from the ALA Annual Conference in Chicago, and am exhausted, filled to the brim with learning, and weighted down once again with quite a bit of exhibit hall swag! The American Association of School Librarians is a division of the American Library Association, and SCASL, if you did not know, is a […]

Our SCASL Conference two weeks ago hosted MrSchu (John Schumacher) as a featured speaker, and I tell you he did not disappoint. Since the conference I have been hearing over and over about his CBS This Morning Spot, so I finally took time to search for it. The CBS sites listed it, but it wouldn’t […]

#SCASL17 is in the books

  #SCASL17 was one of the best conferences I’ve ever attended. Thank you, @cathyjo! — John Schu (@MrSchuReads) March 24, 2017 It will take quite a while to process a state level conference that one planned from scratch! There are so many people I need to thank. I know I will miss many who helped […]

I always try to attend at least one of Leslie Fisher’s sessions. Sometimes that winds up being in the exhibit hall at a booth. But I made sure to attend her Group Smackdown. I always learn something new that I can use immediately. This session did not disappoint. My favorite take away: Mac users who […]

I feel like Steve Anderson is like a next door neighbor. I mean seriously, he’s from North Carolina, just above my own home state. Because I’ve been so close geographically, I’ve managed to never see him in a presentation until Friday, January 15, at FETC. It’s weird to realize I had to travel so far away […]

After such a filling Thursday, it was difficult to imagine that I could add “one more thing” to my brain.  Friday wasn’t as stellar a day as Thursday. My session choices fell flat for me, though Adam Bellow’s One More Thing was a great start!  The session, while entertaining and lively, and a great way […]

This concurrent session at FETC Thursday, January 14 was extremely inspiring. I’ve listened to Speaker Sylvia Martinez at a number of ISTE Conferneces, at Educon, and now at FETC and she is, with or without hubby Gary Stager, a force to be reckoned with. If you don’t want to feel inspired, skip her sessions! From […]

I really enjoyed Gabriel Carrillo’s #FETC session on App Smashing with these three tools at the FETC Conference Concurrent Session January 14, 2016. Gabriel, an AZ School District Tech Specialist showed us how to create audio files (narrations, announcements, even singing) and then fiddle with them to have background music with a variety of themes. The […]
