Fun at FETC 2009
Attending conferences and meeting teachers is my favorite perk of the job. I am always amazed by the enthusiasm and dedication that teachers have for finding and bringing their students the best resources available.
I spent last weekend at the Florida Educational Technology Conference in Orlando, demonstrating Scholastic Teacher Share beta, a new, free resource-sharing tool that allows you to find, create, and share classroom resources with other teachers.
Our Scholastic bloggers were also out in force on the exhibit floor and at sessions, capturing their favorite moments and products:
- Michelle Bourgeois, one of our Tech Tutors bloggers, was on hand to deliver her presentation, "Creating a Personal Learning Network with Web 2.0 tools." She spent the rest of her time as a student and
- Christine Germano, our Early Childhood Teacher blogger, shares what she learned about Adobe Flash Professional and Adobe Premiere and Google Maps.
- Ken Royal of The Royal Treatment has more than 20 videos of new products and one-on-one interviews.
- Brian Nadel of Tech Tools rounds up his favorites from FETC.
Thanks to all the teachers who stopped by the Scholastic booth. If you are in Austin, TX next week for the TCEA Convention, please stop by the Scholastic Booth and ask Kathy Walsh or Mark Barrett for a demo of Teacher Share.
