Another busy summer is almost over, and I’ve begun preparing for the upcoming school year.  I had wonderful experiences at ISTE 2011 and made many new connections that will be valuable as my district continues planning for 1:1 computing.  My district team participated in two poster sessions and a birds of a feather session.  The educators who stopped by and shared their experiences with me reinforced my belief that we must constantly continue to grow and learn.

One thing I’ve been learning about this summer is making effective presentations.  I love the PechaKucha presentation method and decided to use my trip to Peru for my back-to-school presentation.  Going on a vacation adventure is a lot like starting a new school year so I used the theme “A New Journey Begins” to share my experience.


I hope you enjoy the photos and start thinking about how you can motivate your colleagues as the new school year begins.
