(Moblogged on my phone) I’m Sitting at the Hartford Airport. My flight is slightly delayed, probably the standard Chicago afternoon delays. I’ll land there in a few hours, rent a car, and drive up to Fond du Lac, Wissconsin.
Tomorrow I speak at the WCON Online Learning Symposium. I’ll be talking about blogging and podcasting in a breakout session, followed by a keynote about contempory literacy.
Today was a great day of presenting and enjoying the wonderful Massachusetts hospitality. Last night, after the webinar, the folks at Discovery Educator Network invited me out to eat with several DEN employees and some DEN members, including some amazingly innovative secondary teachers.
I also had the added treat of eating with Kathy Schrock and Deneen Fraizer-Bowen. It made me even more sorry that I missed Deneen’s keynote. It was interesting listening to her talking about being an actor, and it got me to thinking about similarities between that profession and teaching. I’m not sure what those similarities are, but I am going to let that idea cook a little bit. More tomorrow. A long night ahead.
