ASCD Empower18

Along with my colleagues, I attended the ASCD conference in Boston last weekend. What a tremendous opportunity to network with educators from all across the country. It was a little overwhelming to narrow down what session to attend given all of the options available. One of the better sessions I attended was “The Essentials of […]

ASCD Conference 2018

I had the opportunity to spend the weekend with a group of RSU 1 School Leaders at a conference in Boston. As predicted, the level of engagement in sessions varied, but I knew that it only took one inspiring session to be well worth my investment. The Engagement By Design session, presented by Jeff Marshall […]

3:1 A Quick Reminder

This past weekend I attended the ASCD Conference in Boston. One session that had an impact on me was facilitated by Randy Sprick, founder of the organization called Safe and Civil Schools. It had an impact on me because my take away wasn’t a new, improved way of doing something. Instead, it was a humble […]

Pandora’s Headset: The Ethics of VR in Education

This session was easily the most uncomfortable session I’ve ever attended at a conference, for a variety of reasons (the primary one has already been covered by Cree in his blog post). That said, it came around for me by the end and I left with some new perspectives on VR and AR in education. […]

Word of the Day: Pinsamt

There’s a word in Swedish that means ‘collective embarrassment.’ You know what I’m talking about: your parents crash your slumber party in the 8th grade with a new board game; your buddy overshares around the BBQ and everyone looks away. If it’s cringe-worthy, chances are it’s pinsamt. SXSW Edu might seem like an unlikely venue […]

I learned about a documentary called Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World (available for free on Amazon Prime). And a series of lessons that were developed by to accompany segments of the film. The idea behind […]

But Boyd’s words were no less […]
