I delivered my workshop on professional learning communities during the first session on Saturday. My resources may be found here.
Gary Johnson came up from SSIS for the conference and I got to attend his workshop on Google Scripts. If you are familiar with the TV show, The Wire, they refer to McNulty as "Real Police". Well Gary Johnson is "Real Teacher". He taught us some very useful Google Scripts and his materials may be accessed using the above link.
Patrick Green was the key note speaker and he opened the conference with his presentation, 'The Relevant Teacher'. A sample of what he was speaking about may be viewed here. He then led two workshops. The first was on YouTube and the second on Google Maps. Again, what can I say except that they were incredible. If your school is not using Google Apps For Education (GAFE), which is free, you are doing your students a disservice in this day and age.
The final session I attended was by Pete Kennedy. He gave an excellent presentation entitled 'Driven to Digital Distraction'. Pete showed us the dangers of multitasking and his materials will be available here soon.
A huge thanks to everyone involved in the conference and forgive me if the tone of this post is a bit different to my usual. As I said, I am buzzing off the learning right now!
