Flurry of Technology Conference Review




Last week I had the opportunity to present at the Flurry of Technology Conference sponsored by West Georgia RESA.  Attendees included educators ranging from administrators to classroom teachers from grades K-12.  

We used a shared Google Folder to access all of the materials we would use during the conference.  It can be viewed HERE.

I can't wait to come back to West Georgia RESA in March for more learning fun! 

It was really exciting to get tweets later in the week from teachers who attended the conference who had already started using what they learned with their students!





Monday and Tuesday the day was spent learning with Elementary Educators.


Wednesday and Thursday the day was spent learning with Middle & High School Educators.



We also had a couple of visitors stop by the Flurry of Technology Conference.

Promethean & the #PowerUpEDU Bus




Discovery Education & Shayla Rexrode



Among the flurry of tech learned during the conference, attendees also learned about twitter and how to participate in a twitter chat.  Tweets from #WestGaRESA can be viewed HERE

We also discussed technologies to help with student voice and reflecting on learning.  On day 2 of the conference we used Padlet to reflect on what we learned during Day 1.  Chad posted my favorite response.

We also took a look at FlipGrid for enabling student voice.  On the first video Tyler and friend demonstrate what 8th grade boys might do using FlipGrid! LOL!
