I am excited to be a sponsor and a judge for the PA Computer Fair at Dickinson College. This annual event highlights both High School and Middle School student’s application skills and computer knowledge.
I’m really looking forward to tomorrow’s CAIU iPad Summit. I’m presenting twice. “A Model Lesson” and “Managing the Workflow”
I was one of the sponsors for the TedX Youth Camp Hill coordinated by Camp Hill and Mechanicsburg High Schools in November. There were 6 presentations and 4 performers. Go to TedXyouthcamphill.com for pictures of the event. Video will be posted soon. It was a great day.
I presented a keynote address to 250 staff at the Perkiomen Valley School District. Following the keynote, we broke into smaller groups to work on techniques for integrating technology into their classrooms.
I will be teaching a 3-credit graduate course for EDUspire at the Capital Area Intermediate Unit (CAIU) over three weekends in November. There has been a lot of interest in this course. The course is ideal for the novice user yet comprehensive enough for others. Credits awarded through Brandman University. These courses will again be offered in the spring with other locations added for the summer. If your district is interested in hosting this class, contact me or Nathan Hammond at www.EDUspire.org.
I’m anxious to begin a second iPad course at Berks IU14 starting on Friday, October 19. Over 50 teachers have signed up again.
I will be teaching a 3-credit graduate course for EDUspire in three locations (York, Lancaster & Reading) in central PA this summer. There has been a lot of interest in this course. The course is ideal for the novice user yet comprehensive enough for others. Credits awarded through Brandman University. Cost is $1,400 (w/iPAD). These three courses will again be offered in the fall with other locations added for the spring. Check out the EDUspire web site at www.EDUspire.org.
I am again involved with the Tech.it.U Institute offered by Penn State, York. It is hosted at Central York High School and will be held the week of July 9-13. The feedback from last year was great and because of this success, it has been offered again this year. This hands-on training is designed for all skill levels and most subject areas. Attendees will receive 3-Graduate credits or ACT 48 or ACT 45 credits. Register online now at www.techitu.com.

The panel discussions include: Social Media and Training & Education; Disconnecting from Social Networks at Home and Work; Social Media and Game Development; Social Media and Political Change; and Facing Forward: Discussion on Social Networks and Future, Social Media and Product Development, and Social Media and the Job Search.
