Next week I'll be traveling to Orlando, Florida for the annual FETC conference to give my presentation on unbelievable elementary tech projects. I have been panicking trying to get the new projects from my recent iPad Boot Camp included my presentation.
My biggest frustration is that this presentation as it was, would take normally two and a half hours to show and now with the new stuff that I just got from the iPad Boot Camp, I don't know how I'm going to fit all of the projects into the one hour time limit that I have at FETC. So I guess the best thing I can do is to show little samples of each project to give a little taste of what is possible for young students to do with technology. Because if these conference attendees are anything like I am when I go to conferences, I go there for two reasons; I go there to be inspired and I go to there to steal ideas and that's really what I want to do, I want to give them lots of different ideas that will inspire them and also things that they can just take back to their own schools and take credit for themselves.
If you are planning on attending, my friends at Atomic Learning have a free Expo Pass: https://www.xpressreg.net/register/fetc012/start.asp?sc=FREE016 then enter this code: FREE016.
