Well, thanks to a very wet spring snow storm, the technology fair has been rescheduled for Saturday, May 16.  The time and place will stay the same.

I am sitting in the first session of the last day at South Dakota TIE.  So far the conference hasn’t been too bad.  It hasn’t been too great either.  Our presentation on Sunday (along with a lot of others) hit a major snag when the poorly laid Internet connection crashed.  We did the best we could and thankfully our audience was very understanding.

The conference finished us today around 2:00.  Gwynn and I will hit the road immediately after.  We are planning a stop at the Mammoth Site in Hot Springs, SD, but then straight home for a nap!

Busy Busy April!!

Wow! What a busy time of year!

I just finished a course that will certify me to be a Thinkfinity Field Trainer.  So look for some Thinkfinity based PD to be offered soon!

The district Technology Fair is Saturday, April 18th from 9:30-12:30 at Paris Elementary School.  This year we had over 200 applications.  101 of them were selected to present at the the Technology Fair.  Prizes have been donated by Discovery Education, Cinema Grill, and Wolf Camera.

April 19-21 is the South Dakota TIE Conference.  Gwynn and I will be presenting on Sunday the 19th.  Our topic is creating GoogleEarth tours using media from the Internet and Discovery Streaming.

Then we get started on the AEA Technology Integration Caucus.  We were officially approved by the AEA board on April 7th.  We’ll have a committee meeting sometime in early May to begin planning the Summer Technology Bootcamp that will take place in July.

I’m registered for 2 Webinars.  The FETC Webinar is April 23rd and then the DEN Spring Virtual Conference is the 25th. 

April 25th is also 6th Avenue’s Spring Carnival.

Look for more updates soon!
