If you would like to listen to the CIO of the GaDOE speak and meet some of the foremost Georgia leaders of instructional technology, sign up ASAP for the 2nd Annual Classroom Innovation and Personalized Learning Consortium this coming Thursday, July 21st.

This event is sponsored by the Georgia Department of Education and the Georgia Instructional Technology Advisory Committee and is hosted at one of my schools: North Oconee High School in Bogart, GA (about 10 minutes west of Athens, GA). It will start at 10:00 AM and go until 3:00 PM and will include a catered lunch.

I've learned that there are still a few spots left, so I wanted to share in this community to gather more outstanding Georgia educational rockstars! We already have some members in GEGGA presenting in the afternoon, and I am planning to invite any GEGGA folks out for an early morning CoffeeEDU beforehand.

Registration is closing extremely soon, so ask the Powers That Be to give you some professional leave, and I hope to see you there!

Happy 4th of July! Shout out to Georgia patriots Button Gwinnett, Lyman Hall, and George Walton for signing the Declaration of Independence. Try to find their names on this special copy digitized by the +Google Cultural Institute!

HINT: On a laptop/desktop, click on the document and toggle the zoom that appears on the left (you can pinch and zoom on a mobile device). Then look PROUDLY at the small group of three standing alone to the left of all the other signatures!

+Jaime Vandergrift and I are jumping into a Hangout on Air within the next 15 minutes to show off the new Google Sites!

Warning: If you are a Sites geek, you may want to be sitting down. :)

Hi, y'all! If anyone is interested, +Jaime Vandergrift and myself are holding an impromtu Hangout on Air in about an hour looking at the new Google Sites (Spoiler Alert: IT IS AMAZING!).

If you are randomly available and willing to put your face in the public sphere, let me know here, and I'll give you a temporary login for my district and invite you in. I always want to bring in my fellow GA educators first!

EdCamp Athens is this Saturday!

And there are only a few spots remaining!

If anyone is looking for an incredible experience with great door prizes, rock star educators from across the state, and a lot of great local food (including a frozen custard sundae bar), register to attend and don't miss out!

The school (North Oconee High) is located just outside of Athens to make it more accessible to those coming from the Western side of Georgia via Highway 316/78.

I hope to see you there!
