ISTE 2017

I am so excited to be back at ISTE this year! Last time I was at ISTE I was 8 month pregnant. I'm excited to have a little more energy and many more friends with me with time!


Today I am presenting a 15 minute mini session at the Tynker Booth.  They asked the Tynker  Blue Ribbon Educators to sign up to do this so I figured I could talk about using "Using Tynker and PBS LearningMedia to go Beyond Hour of Code."

They've created this Tweetcard for the conference.


I'm honored to be included in such a group! If you are at ISTE you can sign up here for any of the session: bit.ly/2t4Fg1g

I'm also presenting a poster with the very talented Cara Pavek on Tuesday. We were up late last night preparing our poster.



 We present our poster on using green screen with augmented reality on Tuesday from 4-6.  We will be working again tonight to get the finishing touches just right, but we are still having a great time!

#NSTA17

I started a blog post a few weeks ago, but never hit post. I have it in my drafts waiting for another time. This week however, I'm at #NSTA17 in LA. There is nothing like presenting at a conference to make me realize how neglected my poor little blog has become. Something about teaching full time and having three kids makes that happen.

Yesterday I had the privilege to share STEAM in Action at the National Science Teachers Association Conference. It was a 30 minute session and went SO fast. I could have easily talked for an hour. I was pleased with how it went and I made some great contacts.

Now I get to enjoy the rest of the conference! So far I've heard Bill Nye and Andy Weir speak. How cool is that?
