Today I was able to go to the UCET conference. I am so excited about some of the things that I learned about at the conference. In the next few weeks I’m going to share some of the things that I learned about at the conference. Before we left my technology teacher suggested that we use the idea of the three square to keep us from getting overwhelmed. It’s easy to go to a conference like this and hear about a bunch of new ideas and then get back to your classroom and not do anything with it because there were so many great ideas that you don’t know where to start. I almost kept it to only three things :). In the next few weeks I’ll be posting about virtual field trips, flippity, explain everything, and fluency tutor.
At the conference I also got to try out MakeyMakey’s for myself. I had heard about them through a twitter chat. I had thought of a few ideas to be able to use them in my class. I wrote a grant in order to get them for my class and now I’m REALLY hoping that I get my grant.
