Preparing to Conference

We’re only half way through and February has already been a busy month around here. And it won’t be letting up this week.

The big event coming up is our state technology conference sponsored by the Virginia Society for Technology in Education which begins next Sunday.

I’ll be doing three workshops at the meeting, and all of them are unfinished at this writing.

In my own defense, I’ve done all of them several times before so I’m not exactly starting from scratch. My problem is that I don’t like to just reuse the same materials in the same way so I’ve got some work to do.

Especially since the topics I’ll be presenting refuse to stand still. Take Google Earth, for example. I swear the people behind Earth add new features almost every day.

Then there’s my overview of Web 2.0 in the classroom, a topic which is certainly very fluid, and for which I’ve got far more material than will fit in a 2-1/2 hour workshop. I want everyone to have a good experience without feeling overwhelmed.

Even the cascading style sheets (CSS) session needs some updating, even though that technology, at least at the beginners level, has been very stable over the years.

Anyway, if you happen to be traveling to glamorous Roanoke, Virginia next weekend, check the workshop board and, if there’s still space in any or all of the three, please join us.

If you can’t attend in person, I’ll link to the materials for those interested participating virtually. That will probably happen a few minutes before the workshop starts.

However, it’s only because I want to be completely up to date, not that I’m procrastinating. Yeah, that’s the ticket. :-)

    I’m curious about this conference. Are you paid for your presentations? I know you are offering valuable information. Just curious.

    Workshop presenters get free registration while people who do a breakout session get a discount on the registration. I’m pretty sure our keynote speakers are paid.
