Today I attended the Discovery Educator Network‘s Spring Virtual Conference. I’ve watched lots of archived webinars, participated in several live ones, and even presented one on 21st Century Literacy Skills for Global Citizenship for the Texas High School Project. But this was my first experience with an all-day virtual conference, and I was really impressed.
Reflecting on why I liked it so much, I’ve come up with two seemingly contradictory reasons:
- It held my attention from session to session.
- It allowed me to multitask while participating via the chat and twitter as well.
They’ll be posting the recordings of all the sessions on the DEN site, so I’ll just share my outline here and fill in with links later.
