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 […]
First off, I’ll share my entire DENSI2015 flickr set: Next I’ll share the #DENSI2015 Group set : Note: Flickr has done away with the ability to share a set(now known as album) in show mode but a little search revealed that one can still add the word “show” to the end of the URL and then […]
Today was a long, long day for me with my travel to DC that started with a 7AM flight, a short layer over, and then arriving finally at 11:15ish. One of the DENLC from Raleigh, NC (Katie Bollinger) provided an airport shuttle service today which was quite helpful. It was nice to not have to […]
Favorite Person? I met up with Sue Levine upon my arrival in Philly. Sue allowed me to room with her at the Home2 Suites right across from the convention center, and it was divine! Almost a full kitchen in our room, Sue especially took advantage, storing all kinds of items to create smoothies, snacks, and […]
I’m very excited to start this week. It will be a LONG and enjoyable week. You see Wednesday begins our annual SCASL conference, #SCASL2015. And what’s not to love? Just a few exciting things for me personally: Two presentations, “Flipped Libraries” and “Not Another PowerPoint: Presentation Alternatives” Project Connect Exhibit Hall Grand Opening with Frances […]
This was a repeated theme through sessions I attended and conversations I had while in Atlanta last week. Glad I snapped this photo from the 2nd ISTE Ignite session. I’m going to find a way to replicate this and display it in our Dorman Library. Stay tuned.
