I'm winding up and winding down at the same time. I just finished an amazing week at the Punahou Lab School (for teachers) learning how technology, iPads in particular, can be used in the classroom. Recognizing that content, pedagagy and tech all have to work together, our cohort worked hard to bring in what we know while adding much more and was exposed to many amazing resources.
I am now doing the nitty gritty details of packing as I've figured out what clothes and shoes I'll be taking. It's carry on only and with trekking through a 15,000 ft pass, I want to make sure I'm warm enough - that's the challenge.
Next week I'm attending the Hawaii conservation conversation for content and to get excited about teaching my science class next year. The conference takes me right up to Thursday when I depart. Whew.
I'm not sure why the photo got inserted upside down...this is a test of this blogger site and tool.
