CAMT 2011 Grapevine, Texas

This a little different then my usual post. I have been waking up before church to blog about all the great technology I have stumbled on this summer. But today I find myself packing and double checking all my materials for this years math conference. After a 12 year absence from presenting, I find some major differences.

1) I was in a different district with different colleagues
2) All our handouts where thick and bulky....going as green as I can get this year.
3) Presented a section on measurement that was fun, but require teachers to make all their manipulative material

This year I'm heading to Grapevine with Mrs. Chapman and Mrs. Harris, both colleagues and friends. Mrs. Chapman and I have 2 presentations & they both are "Techy" in nature.

I have had a smart board in my room now for two years and the first session is about all the interactive lessons I have found on the web and how you can use them in your classroom. Here is that session if you plan on attending the conference this year:

"Smart" Choices for the Interactive Classroom
Tuesday 10:30-11:30
Appaloosa 1

The second session is about some of the "techy" tools that Mrs. Chapman & I have been blogging about on our post. This session is exciting for me because these are tools that will inspire great lessons that I believe will excite your students like never before. No more worksheets, cut outs and dull moments. Students will be blogging, making interactive posters, "Jogging" the web, making wordles, and voicethreads to name a few. Interested, check out this session.

Get "Techy" In Math
Wednesday 1:00 - 2:00 & 2:15 - 3:15
Mustang 4

Well, I must go my ride will be here in 10 minutes. Can't wait to see what exciting tools and lessons I discover at this years math conference. Hope to see you at CAMT 2011.
