Was at a school district doing some SMART Notebook PD and walked into a classroom only to find this poster on the wall! Oh the memories! I didn't even have to say anything to my students, just point to the sign and they'd walk away. Love that I'm not the only one who thinks like this.
Google Conference is here, Kalahari here I come!
Unfortunately I didn't have a whole lot of time to enjoy the water park as it was a very busy couple of days full of setting up, presenting, and cricuting (yes I said cricuting)! I presented twice at the Google Conference, once repeating my Digital Bell Ringers presentation; apparently it was a hit at OETC and then a new one called From LA to Tokyo with Google's Geo Tools.
I can't tell you enough how much I LOVE Google's Geo Tools and how easy it is to integrate these tools into your daily classroom lessons. I promise to do a post soon on just Google's Geo Tools and the classroom integration.
As for the cricuting, before the Google Summit I loved using my Cricut, now I don't want to touch that thing for a VERY VERY long time! We decided to model our Cricuts and the possible classroom uses at the conference, as well as make fun little things for winners at our booth; by the end of each day I was covered in sticky cricuting paper! I even had it stuck to the bottom of my shoe and my hair!!
All in all it was a wonderful conference and of course I came home exhausted and so happy to see my couch!
