Monday's TIE Conference

With over a thousand participants, the TIE conference is off to a great start. The gifts are fun - we all got a cool bag and a TIE blanket. When picking up the bag we were given a sheet of vendors. If each of those punched your sheet, you could turn it in for a ticket for extra prize drawings. Lots of prizes have been given away already and more to come tomorrow.

Getting to see friends and explore new technologies is fun. I love the TIE conference and always come back to school with a renewed sense of purpose. I think this year's is off to a rousing success.

I love the blanket! I needed it in the Ponderosa Room this morning--BRRR--despite the fact that Tim Mitchell's words were warm--he described how Chamberlain is using Tech-Paths to insure a viable curriculum...He shared "the good, the bad, and the ugly." He said he's willing to have the adults in his system endure a little discomfort if it's ultimately going to be good for kids. I like that...He is also a STRONG proponent of professional learning communities. I like that too!

TIE always comes up with something! Great idea on the blankets! The free bag came in very handy to pick up our goodies in the hall. Thanks TIE for another fantastic technology conference!
