FETC Virtual Conference Fall 2010


This is my second FETC Virtual Conference and many of the presentations were great. The keynote presentation on Mobile Learning the key changer for k-12 spoke to the issuesof using mobile devices within the classroom. The presenters Elliot Soloway and Cathleen Thomas discussed the issue of how to provide 1 to 1 technology in the classroom by using the technology that are already in the hands of the students.

I will be attending the NJAET conference tomorrow 10/12/10. Some of the workshops that I will be attending include " Reaching the Digital Immigrant", "Web 2.0 Riding High on the New Wave", "Increasing Functional Language in Preschool Children with Special Needs", etc. Many of the workshops look very interestingand I am looking forward to learning new technology tools and strategies for the classroom.
