Learning Everywhere & Everywhen


I had an opportunity to present at the third annual EdTechTeam California Summit ft Google for Education, and it was an amazing experience. I did have a few butterflies about presenting, since I was in the presence of some serious ed tech cerebral muscle. To be counted among some amazing luminaries was an incredible opportunity in and of itself, so I tried to bring the best of what I know.

In my experience, the final session on Sunday is one of those sessions where the energy is low. Most people's brains are full, and that usually includes my own. I was lucky to have one of my lighter sessions (about Google drawings) scheduled in this time slot, and I enjoyed it. We covered topics that the attendees said they wanted to learn, and I had fun.



This week, one of my attendees posted a link on Twitter, and thanked me in it. The link took me to a tutorial on creating a custom wallpaper for your smart phone using Google Drawings. I'd never considered this before, and I was amazed at how the learning continued after the session. It's touching to see someone take what you've shown them and extend the learning into new areas, and to share it back to the community.


For me, this was one of the best aspects of the CA #gafesummit, and it didn't even happen during the summit itself. It served to highlight the amazing network of brilliant educators that attend these events. I consider myself lucky to be plugged into this community of energetic, enthusiastic and creative individuals.

So, in summary, I need to say a big thank you. Thanks to EdTechTeam for putting on this event and inviting me to be a part of it. Thanks to the presenters from whom I've learned. Thanks to the creative thinkers who encourage me to think critically about my teaching practice. And finally, and most importantly, thanks to everyone who came to my sessions. You always remind me after these events just how powerful an idea can be.
