Canadians in Florida

FETC is a conference that I’ve attended several times in the last decade. I’ve attended as a presenter and participant but 2012 was the first time as an Exhibitor. That was a bit strange. It was a great learning experience for me as I witnessed a wonderful DEN Pre-Conference Event led by Lodge McCammon and Katy Gimbar.
For me the highlight was the Tuesday evening reception where over a hundred folks spent a couple of hours together networking and getting to know one another. There was a very good representation from Canada from several provinces. Odd to find so many Canadians in Florida in January. ;) I got to know many new folks who I know will be integral to building the DEN community in Canada. Throughout the next couple of days I had many informal conversations with people who are really excited about the idea of a Canadian network of educators using technology in their classrooms. While these networks currently exist informally, I’m thrilled to be able to have a job that is dedicated to this full time. The resources that Discovery can provide is what makes this stand out for me as a big deal.
Watch out everyone, the Canadians are coming.
