Reflections on the MSTC (and BBQ)

I had a blast at the MidSouth Technology Conference last week.  I’ve been to a few different places in the United States, but I’ve never met people as nice as those I met in Memphis.

Good ole' Memphis sunset.

The first day I had the opportunity to listen to Kathy Schrock’s presentation entitled “A Picture is Worth 1000 Words.” I was definitely able to relate to her topic because visual representation is a key ingredient to what we do here at Glogster EDU.  I also had the chance to sit in on Isabella Scaramucci’s presentation about Glogster EDU entitled “Creating the Private Virtual Classroom” as well as “Using Web 2.0 Tools to Enhance Student Creativity in the Reading/Language Arts Block” presented by Dr. Megan Salemi and Lori Carter.  Both presentations had a good showing, and I think that attendees were able to take away a lot of useful teaching techniques to apply to their own classrooms.

Isabella Scaramucci’s presentation, “Creating the Private Virtual Classroom”

My session entitled “Glogster EDU:  Transform your Classroom into a Virtual Learning Environment” was a great success!  I had approximately 60 people in attendance, and I had a great time having fun with the crowd.  We went over the ins–and-outs of Glogster EDU while having some much needed fun on a Friday morning.

All in all, the MSTC was a great success for all parties involved. And if you ever get a chance to visit Memphis, I recommend checking out a restaurant called Cozy Corner. No one does BBQ like Memphis!

Mmmm...
