Here I sit about to start day 2 of the 2015 Miami Device conference. Felix Jacomino and his team at St. Stephens Episcopal have done another amazing job preparing for the influx of 350 educators from 5 continents.
This year I had the privileged of presenting “Harnessing Social Media”. While this wasn’t my first conference presentation, it was the first one I applied for all on my own. I was very excited to be able to share information with educators here.
Sarah Thomas did an amazing job with her “Level Up! Five Steps to Gamify your Classroom”. She provided a streamlined way for any teacher to start the process. I must say, I am intrigued. I have to start making some plans for next semester….
I also learned a great deal from Sylvia Tommaso during her Sketchnoting session. It was a 2 hour block so we really got to dig in and make something cool. Here’s my sketchnote.
I’ve caught up with several incredible educators, from John Martin, to Rodney Turner. I can’t wait to see what I learn today.
