Happy New Year!
This past October, I returned my third trip downunder this year where I keynoted a conference on 1:1 computing and worked with schools.
I will be back in Australia in May to keynote the Edutech Conference
in Brisbane. Schools in Australia and New Zealand interested in working with me in late-May/early June should contact me.
A few dates are still available.
I flew more than 175,000 miles in 2012, spoken at two Maker Faires, took my nephew on a genealogy tour of Eastern Europe, presented at my 25th NECC/ISTE Conference, worked with the world-class school architecture/design firm Fielding-Nair International
, led a 3-day PBL workshop in Los Angeles, hosted an amazing CMK 2012 and continued my work as the Director of S.T.E.M. for The Oaks School in Hollywood.
In November, I keynoted conferences in Oklahoma, Kentucky, Pennsylvania and Illinois. I also led my first half-day "Digital Reggio" workshop at the National Association for the Education of Young Children in Atlanta and made several presentations at the Christa McAuliffe Technology Conference in New Hampshire. I will be speaking at ASCD in March. Check out my calendar and come say, "Hello!"
