I had the privilege and opportunity to present at WEMTA 2010 this year as a spotlight presenter. The 2 1/2 hour hands-on session was of course one of my favorites which was titled: Transforming Your Classroom Instruction with Web 2.0 Literacy Tools." David Kapuler co-facilitated with me- so it was wonderful to have another instructor as a "dynamic duo" to share our best of the best resources and showcase how to introduce these tools to students to create a final product meeting the ISTE NETS in the k-12 classroom. Lots of conversation with participants and WEMTA attendees have taken place before, during and after this conference, which has kept this topic on the forefront of education in Wisconsin.
I am really impressed with the motivation and dedication that some Wisconsin educators showcase to stay current with technology integration, and to change and enhance their teaching and learning environments. Ultimately it is a win-win situation for the school district and especially their students!
