TIES Conference 2013 - Fast Forward, Transforming Pedagogy With Technology

On Monday and Tuesday I attended the 2013 TIES (Technology and Information Education Services) Conference.  This is an annual education technology conference that I look forward to attending every year.  I find it energizing to hear what other innovative teachers are trying.  It sparks new ideas for me to return and try with our OHE students!!! 

Tuesday's Keynote Speaker - 
Mizuko Ito, cultural anthropologist

My favorite presentation of the entire conference was a presentation by Ben Friesen, Digital Content Specialist (below) for Hopkins Public School.  I walked away with lots of new lesson ideas, apps and websites that I can't wait to show our students!!

I really enjoyed Gadget Girl - Leslie Fisher (below) who showed off all the latest technology and it's potential use in the classroom.
