Palm Beach Technology Conference

Last week I had the pleasure of attending the Palm Beach Technology Conference.  I must admit I was a little skeptical that a county was holding their own conference with the expectations of nearly 2000 in attendance.  Immediately upon my arrival at the conference I was amazed to see the precision with which this event was run.  There was a tremendous Keynote from Dr. Tim Tyson from Georgia who was inspiring as well as thought provoking.  There were also featured speakers including our own Hall Davidson who talked about bridging Google Earth with Discovery Education streaming.  I was graciously provided with three sessions, which the materials for are below.  Throughout the day the event ran seamless with the professionalism I have come to expect from Lee Kolbert and the other involved members of the Palm Beach Technology Team.  I wish every state, much less county could hold such a thought-provoking and eye-opening event.  Thanks to

Palm Beach County for their incredible work and effort.  I also want to thank Tom Turner, the blog manager for

Florida, who provided me with some wonderful new resources and my new favorite internet browser
Flock which advertises itself as “The Social Web Browser” and the tag line fits.  Also, I want to make certain everyone is finding out about Diigo, which has taken the potential of del.icio.us to a new level.  Spring is here and it is time to start establishing those connections that will take you through the summer months.

    Thanks for the nice words, Brad. The conference was very successful, but a lot of the credit goes to you, Hall and Chris and the folks at Discovery for all of your support. Discovery normally has such a large presence in our district, our conference would be seriously lacking without your participation. Feedback has been terrific. I’m already looking forward to next year. Thanks for all you did for us, and all you continue to do. I hope we will see some new DEN members from Palm Beach now. ~Lee
