A HUGE word of thanks to all those who attended my sessions over the past two days at InterActive Learning Conference at UW-Whitewater. The sessions I had were well attended and had a lot of great feedback. Links to ALL of my sessions are available to the RIGHT of this post under PAGES: IntertActiv 2013.

Thanks to Scott Christensen and the entire InterActive Learning Team, all the vendors, the presenters, and UW-Whitewater’s Tech crew for a fantastic couple of days.

Comments from Survey: Thanks All!

  • Enjoyed your energy. All your communication with parents. I need to get my staff to do that more. I will share all your tools.
  • Putting goals out there for my students. Right now, they just have to guess… and most of them don’t try, oddly 🙂
  • I’ve enjoyed it a lot. Learned a lot. It’s been great to have some time to work and experiment with WordPress.
  • I liked that it setting up a blog is easy and free.

And Even…

  • I think you over-explained and I grew bored.
  • It seemed sort of self-promotional.

I appreciate ALL the comments. I enjoyed working with each group and learning form other experts in their own fields. Criticism in essential in the learning process and I appreciate all the work and reflections from everyone. Your thoughts about my sessions… HERE.

Self-Portraits and Reflection on oneself... charcoal on paper.
Self-Portraits and Reflection on oneself… charcoal on paper. What do you think about when you reflect on the lessons you teach? The ideas the kids walk away with? Reflection is essential to the process of learning – them and us.

~~~

Goals:

  • Walk away with a new set of tools, skills, and connections to help your students (and yourself) become stronger and more self-aware / driven learners (and teachers).
  • Share the ideas and skills about technology that you are great at and help others become more knowledgeable in technology.

Kids will say the Darndest Things…

Knowing that sketchbooks and goals will ALWAYS be part of the courses, what is one suggestion that you have to offer for future classes? What are some suggestions you may have to help the class become even stronger or more fulfilling than it already is? These require explanation please.

  • “Make the goals so that everyone does them and doesn’t slack. It helps my brain learn from the beginning of class and I know it will help others.”
  • “To take the goals and understand them not just write them down.”
  • “The goals were kind of hard to understand when looking back at them. It’s easy to understand when you explain. but the way they are written down is tricky to look back at.”
