This past week, I was able to attend and present at the ICE (Illinois Computing Educators) Conference at the Pheasant Run Resort and Conference Center in St. Charles, Illinois with a few other Wisconsin DEN Stars.
First, let me begin by giving a shout out to the amazing people who coordinated this fantastic conference. With DEN Star member Anne Truger as ICE President, I knew it could only be amazing – and it was! It was truly one of the best conferences I have attended. With nearly 4000 people in attendance over the 4 days, I was able to attend some incredible workshops that I hope to share with you over a few blog posts.
When we first arrived, on Wednesday night, we attended the DEN Ice Cream Social with lots of delicious ice cream toppings. This was so much fun and a great way to connect with many DEN members. Steve Dembo, Hall Davidson and other cool DEN members enjoyed time collaborating, sharing stories and laughing. The time flew by and before I knew it, I had collected many DEN trading cards, and meet new friends. Thursday and Friday were filled with keynote speakers, workshops, sessions and more! So much great information.
In this blog post, I want to share some of those pictures from the event, as a picture truly is worth 1000 words. Stay tuned for more updates about the info. from the conference. For now, I hope you enjoy these photos.
