Ok guys this is THE way to start the year off! For the second year in the row I’ve had the opportunity to attend and be a part of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia Tech Conference and, I have to say, it was awesome…dare I say one of the best!
Will Richardson kicked things off and challenged participants to embrace 21 century literacy skills on Friday, January 16, 2009. The following day Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach, continued Will’s discussion and participants then broke into several break out sessions – including sessions by DEN Stars Jen Dorman and Joe Konecki!
One of the best moments for me came tonight. As I walked out of my room towards the ballroom for dinner I overheard conversations from two administrators who expressed the following, “Did you get on the Wiki tonight” followed by “Yes, and I jumped on Skype to tell my friends about it!” There was such an awesome buzz and genuine excitement throughout the day – I couldn’t wait to get back to my computer and share it with you all.
The Tech Conference wraps up tomorrow with a closing keynote by our very own Jen Dorman but not before the Archdiocese of Philadelphia really celebrates technology tonight:
