I just returned from a trip to the World Canal Conference held in downtown Rochester. I was tagged to present the Erie Canal State-Wide project in which fit into the Classroom Track they offered at the conference. A room full of educators and off we went with our presentation. Some great ideas were shared and a lot of interest was generated for the project. We will be gearing up for a new year around January 2011. Keep a look out for sign up information or share this project with educators you feel might be interested.
Here's a little promo video that I'd like to share - 2010 Erie Canal Project
Next week teachers from many of our component school districts will converge on Nazareth College for the annual Teaching, Learning & Technology Conference. Each summer this conference proves to be an event teachers find valuable. Like other conferences, TLT is comprised of sessions where teachers learn from experts and peers. Different from other conferences, TLT does not have any keynote speakers. Not having keynote speakers allows more time for teachers to attend sessions, explore, experiment and play with what they've learned.
This was borrowed from the fine folks over at the WYNRIC...
