LI Tech Summit 2009

Attending the Long Island Tech Summit.

Will Richardson just provided a very thought provoking keynote address.  Check out his blog at http://weblogg-ed.com/. Will introduced many of the attendees to Diingo.

David Warlick, the second keynote speaker at today’s event just showed a great site he only became aware of in the last 24 hours.  Check out Trendsmap, to keep up to date on what’s happening where on Twitter.

Later today, I am participating on a panel discussion on the use of Google Apps in schools.  It was interesting to see David effortlessly and without fanfare or attention, integrate a Google docs worksheet into his presentation this morning.  You can check out a very new (not yet fully developed) Google Site I created as a central point for the roll out of our Polyvision Eno, as an example of the free tools available to educators.

Both speakers were very informative, of course.  More importantly they left all audience members questioning their beliefs, methodologies and practices concerning technology in their schools.  Questioning what technology is made available to their staff and students, and how that technology is currently being used.
