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.
