Excited to be speaking on a @NTENorg Ask the Expert event. Join me:  

Realized that I haven't posted in G+ in A WHILE. How are people finding this social space? Helpful? Dead? Be interested to hear any experiences (positive & negative).

Was lucky to hang out with this dude (+Craig Yen) at #edcampsonoma. Inspiring guy and great interview via +Jeffrey Bradbury.

Must-follow list of educators. Great start for back to school.
Here are some of my favorites educators using Google+ and contributing to the network often. I hope this helps with building your PLN now that we are #backtoschool! I'm considering new additions if you have any suggestions!

Making sure my Google+ friends see this cool mini-documentary the +Edutopia team did on remaking classroom spaces for learning. Hoping it inspires many to start taking control of their classroom spaces :)

This is just around the corner! If anyone is free on 8/1 in the Bay Area, the first ever EdcampMarin is happening. Come join us!
Come enjoy a day with colleagues from California and beyond. Arrive with an idea for a session that you would like to lead or with the anticipation of a full day of learning. A session might explore a technology tool, a discussion about best practices, or a collaborative presentation with multiple facilitators.

During the first hour (8:00-9:00), you will have time to meet other teachers over coffee. There will be an empty session board where you and all attendees can post session titles. Sessions begin at 9:00 am.

Over the course of the day, you will have the opportunity to attend up to four sessions. The rule of the unconference is to “vote with your feet”. If a session doesn’t meet your needs, simply get up and move on to another room.

We will not be providing certificates for the professional development you receive. You will learn great teaching strategies, make new friends, and receive information that you can immediately apply in your classroom and professional life.

More info:

What is the Cost?
EdCamp Marin is free. There will be an epic food truck that will be on site for lunch.

What Should I Bring?
Bring a friend. Bring a laptop or iPad–you will want to view the session board online, tweet, take notes, and view websites discussed throughout the day.

How Do I Register?
