Tots and Technology


I’m Still Soaring

As they say, “All good things must come to an end.” The conference is over and I am home.  I am exhausted and have lost my voice from talking and talking!

I had a couple of these little Cuban expresso coffees and I am back in business.  Thank God for Cuban coffee!

Memorable Snapshots 

Here are a few snapshots of some memorable movements at Tots and Technology.

It is a privilege and on honor to have the “All Star” ribbon on my badge.  I love to share what I have learned with other teachers.  I hope to inspire others to integrate technology in fun and creative ways to engage their students and make learning fun.

I met Shannon Kirkland from Texarkana when she stopped by our booth.  She was recognized this year by TCEA as an outstanding instructional technology specialist.  Read more about her here.

I also want to sent a shout out to Dr. Roland Rios, director of Technology at Ft. Sam Houston.  Thanks for offering and allowing Sandy and I to use your hotspot for our presentation.  The internet connection was acting wonky which spells D-I-S-A-S-T-E-R when you are presenting at a technology conference.  Thank you, thank you!

You can follow Dr. Rios on Twitter at @drrios.  He and his beautiful daughter both serve the children of those American men and women who serve our great county.  How cool is that!

They sure were a fun bunch!

What’s Next? 

Now I am looking forward to my next presentation at TechnoPalooza in Ft. Worth, July 30-31.

I will be co-presenting a session on augmented reality alongside my good friend Jennifer Kimbrell from Arkansas.  Don’t know Jen?  She has an amazing blog, go check it out: Tech with Jen.

Good times!

Ready For the Big Day

I had such a great time today in Galveston with my friends Sandy Cangelosi and Michelle Luthman.  We got to walk on the sandy sea shore and eat at one of my favorite restaurants, the Rain Forest Cafe. Sandy…
