I really enjoyed the conference. My talk was very well attended…standing room only. Lots of interest from the other attendees and lots of positive feedback about what I’ve done so far. People seemed amazed that I’d managed to put together so much information in such a short period of time.
I attended some really good sessions. Karl Lindgren-Streicher gave a great presentation about his flipped experience. I especially liked that he included slides with resources.
I went to Graham Johnsons class about interactive videos. Unfortunately the videos have to be hosted on the TechSmith website so I don’t think I’ll be going down that route but it got me thinking about the Lesson module in Moodle. I could use it to allow students to move through different paths/videos in each lesson.
The last session I went to was Andy Miller’s Apple Apps talk. The two things I took away from his session were 1) the Reflector App which allows you to mirror your iPad display on your Mac which could then be projected in class and 2) MyScript Live which I can see me using in class a lot.
Ramsay Mussallum gave a fantastic keynote talk on Friday morning. The highlight for me was his use of The Karate Kid in emphasizing that we should hope that our students learn to do the things we don’t teach them and not just the things we do.
Hopefully they run this conference again next year.
