#edtech #edchat #tie2011 #tie11 What a wonderful day 2, I'm exhaused and my brain is spinning, but I have learned a lot and I have met some incredible people.
First off, the keynote was given by Roger Pryor who is the School Education Director with the New South Wales Department of Education in Australia. He did a great job, plus he plays the guitar and sings songs during his keynote -- how do you beat that? My big take-away from his keynote that we really need to rethink the question of "What are schools for?" I also like his comment about how we should be data informed and not data driven.
I gave my first presentation on Elementary Filmmaking and it was a great to meet such awesome teachers who really wanted to know all the tips and tricks that I use to get my elementary students to make movies. As part of my presentation I made an impromptu movie with the teachers. A risky undertaking since I never know how this is going to turn out. All I can say is WOW! These teachers really pulled off a great movie that we filmed and edited with my iPad 2 in under 15 minutes.
