I truly enjoyed participating in the Ditch Summit put on by Matt Miller. One of my favorite presentations came from Noah Geisel. It was called ‘Don’t Get Ready, Get Started’. You can watch a preview of Noah’s presentation on YouTube. Noah talked about being ‘audacious’. That was one of the inspirations I had in starting this blog. I had been thinking of blogging for awhile, but I was being a bit stifled by my ‘perfectionist’ nature. Now, here I am sharing my thoughts and experiences with the world. Special thanks to my technology coach/guru, Jennifer Fischer - you can check out her blog here.
I had been following the Ditch That Textbook site for awhile, but I had the chance to participate in an online book club led by Jennifer Fischer about the book Ditch That Textbook which is where I heard about the Ditch Summit.
I had been keeping a lot of these to myself, so there may be an onslaught of posts coming from me in the weeks and months ahead. Special ‘shout outs’ to some of my favorite language teacher blogs:
High school Spanish teacher in NJ. Google for Education Certified Trainer. Always looking to try new things in my classes. Technology junkie.
