Today I was telling someone what I had planned for the summer. I am very excited about Edcamp Leon on June 13th. It coincides with Edcamp Volusia. My pre-service daughter, along with many of my connected educator peers, will be there. I’m hoping to do a Google Hangout to connect the two events. It is time that Florida Educators really connect to realize we are better together.
About two weeks later, I will be off to Philadelphia, PA for my first ISTE conference. ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) 2015 is one of the premier conferences for connected educators. Educators from around the world will be there sharing information about how they integrate technology. I have a poster session presentation along with my friends, Sarah Thomas and Ashley Hurley. I’ve met Sarah, but it will be my first face to face with Ashley. I can’t wait for the three of us to be together. Our conversations have been invaluable to me this year. There are many others I am excited to meet as well. As I said in another post, there are just too many to list here.
There are some other opportunities on the horizon this summer as well. This looks to me to be an on the go summer. Thankfully I have a google drive through my district now so I can continue to collaborate with my school peers while traveling. I am really looking forward to learning at every chance I get.
This may be my favorite summer yet. We shall see.
