Spring is definitely in the air even though it's only mid February! Thinking of spring has me thinking about my upcoming trip to San Antonio, Texas for Tech Camp on April 19. That's right.
I'M FINALLY GOING TO TECH CAMP & TLA!
But wait. It gets better. Check this out:
Crazy, right? See my picture right beside HADI PARTOVI's?! (& my gorgeous, amazing, rock star TL friend NIKKI ROBERTSON!) I've never had the pleasure of meeting Hadi Partovi OR hearing him speak face to face so I am super excited for this opportunity. (You might call me a bit of a fangirl of Hadi & hour of code & code.org!)
I still can't believe they asked me to speak based on those other big names, but it's been advertised so they're stuck with me! The good news is my keynote is during lunch! I'm giving an "Inspirational Lunch Keynote". That's a great time to talk to people, right? When they're happy and eating? (Let's hope I'm not too terrible and they start throwing food...)
I'm also facilitating 2 breakout sessions that day:
- Libraries, Makerspaces, & Messes...oh my! (during Session 1)
We all know that learning can and should be messy! We'll explore various ways to engage students in your library and beyond with hands on learning and exploration via coding, makerspaces, and more. Learning may be messy, but failure isn't a dirty word. Let's talk about how to offer students a space to fail safely to learn and grow.
- Getting HYPED with hyperdocs! (during Session 4)
It is going to be an AMAZING day! Don't believe me? Check out who else is scheduled to present:
Seriously. What are you waiting for? Book your flight and sign up to attend!
Hope to see you there!
