#Eduwow From Today’s EdTech Conference

BEING TECH SAVVY IS A STATE OF MIND, NOT JUST A COLLECTION OF SKILLS.

After two full days of talking, listening, and digesting, the biggest ah-ha moment for me was when this hit me like the proverbial dumptruck of bricks.  

ImageThe best part was that Sean Nash, our presenter, didn’t come out and say this.  After actively participating in his exercise and really thinking about what everyone in the session said, this phrase just popped into my head.  I’m not even really sure that others came to the same conclusion.  

I am sure, however, that this will change the way I manage and plan Professional Development in my district.  It will change how I view teachers and their skill sets, and it will affect how I view my own progress this year.

Attitude really is everything – even when it comes to being labeled as ‘Tech Savvy’.

Thanks to presenter Sean Nash (@nashworld) and his thoughtful presentation and effective use of the Fish Bowl technique!
