I was fortunate enough to be able to spend last Friday with 4 of my teachers and a huge bunch of our colleagues at the Tech Talk Conference at Mercy High School. I was also able to meet my Twitter “peeps” and Apple Distinguished Educators Karen Bosch (@KarlyB) and Larry Baker (@labcbaker) which was fantastic. Liz Kolb (@lkolb) gave an amazing keynote on asking students what they want to do – it is a question that could change the course of their educational lives.
I left the day-long conference very energized and excited about what we have in Michigan for Professional Development. Besides these in-service programs, we also have #MichEd chat on Wednesday evenings on Twitter. Be sure to connect with these educators and join us (even just to follow along) in the chat. You won’t be sorry!
