PD time

Last Thursday and Friday I attended conferences – digesting the various sessions for nutritional value for my classroom.

Thursday was the ACSI convention – satellite links in various locations :

  • Dr. Robert Marzano on The Art and Science of Teaching
  • Drs. Harry and Rosemary Wong on Classroom Management
  • Dr. Christian Overman – What’s the Context? Simple Tools That Bring meaning to Learning

Friday was the ICTM conference with keynote speaker Dan Meyer.  A colleague and I got to sit right up in front so easy to see him as he spoke on Math Modeling.  After lunch he spoke on the Textbook of the Future.    There were 3 other smaller sessions – but Dan Meyer was definitely the draw for many..

Now to find time to figure out how to implement ideas into my classroom.
