I have had the privilege of presenting at conferences within my state for the past five years. I enjoy presenting because I enjoy learning from people asking good questions. My mind thinks differently than theirs. I always appreciate a good question that makes me think.
This year, I had three presentations at ISTE (pictured from left to right below) - a poster session with @misspelsor on How to Be a Tech Coach, a presentation with Liam from @classdojo at the Google booth, and a poster session with a group of educators from the University of Alabama on BYOD: Voices from the Field.
Secondly, let me share that my proudest moment at ISTE had nothing to do with my presentations, but the presentations of students from my district.
Presenting should focus on learning. Presentations are not about showing off what you're doing, it's about sharing the process of how we do what we're doing and why we are doing what we are doing.
What about you? What are you learning? How are you learning it? And, most importantly, why?
