I had a great time traveling to Florida for FETC 2012. Coming from New England, I really appreciated the 80 degree sunshine in the middle of January!
I had the chance to attend a few sessions, my favorite being “Rock Your Student’s Education with Technology” presented by Caryn Good. Caryn’s presentation went over everything from Glogster EDU to Blabberize to Vokis. There wasn’t an open seat in room S230E. I think that there were more people standing or sitting on the floor than in the Technology Shootout that kicked off the conference!
I also attended Lauren Tate’s session, “Increasing Engagement with Web 2.0 tools.” Lauren is a young educator who really knows how to bring life into a classroom. She captures her students’ attention by using every Web 2.0 tool imaginable.
I also want to take this opportunity to congratulate all of our Premium License giveaway winners:
Alex Sadowsky, 5th grade teacher from Flora Ridge Osceola
Kathleen McAllister, Duval County Schools
Arlene Sutherland, librarian from Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy
Barb Bodley, technology teacher from Armleder Education Center
All in all, the FETC conference was a great success! However, I must admit the best part about the entire trip was when I ran into the Vice President for Wilson Sporting Goods in the airport on the way back to Boston. He will be sending me a game ball from this weekend’s Super Bowl. Go Pats! Go Glogster! Go FETC!!
