Upstate Technology Conference 2013

This week I presented at one of my favorite conferences, the Upstate Technology Conference, organized by Greenville County School District.
With such a young baby at home I could not commit to being there all day both days but I did present two sessions each day.
The first day I was excited to present with my favorite special education teacher, Candace. She teaches the profoundly mentally disabled students in our district. We work together very well and collaborate often. After a conversation about how few technology sessions there are for special ed I convinced her to present some of our projects. She is a genius at adapting lessons and tech tools for her students. We had a fun time presenting together and had lots to talk about with the teachers that came to our sessions.

The second day I shared ways that I've utilized infographics with our students. The sessions were well attended and I was able to chat with a few of the book boot camp participants. We even had a mini Twitter lesson between sessions. Thanks Keri, Carmen and Kathy for introducing yourselves and talking with me.

I missed being able to talk to my friends at lunch and missing out on sessions, but I was happy that I was able to still participate this year. Even if it was for a shorter time.

Now I'm looking forward to the first ever Edcamp SC and the Edtech conference this fall.


  1. Is your child struggling with Math? Are you worried about your child's math gradesas they continue to fall behind?

    TeachMeWell is the answer of your problem:

    TeachMeWell will provide the best value by continuing to develop more learning tools for all children, specially in Math.

  2. I have been reading your blog for two years now, and I have closely followed your work on infographics with students. I plan on teaching students to create them and present the lesson at a conference. I wanted to see if I could use some information from the PowerPoint presentation you posted above.
