Later on this week, I will be leaving for the ASCD Conference in Orlando, and thanks to Scott McLeod and the generous group over at ASCD, I will be covering the conference through this medium. With that responsibility comes some pretty cool benefits, one being that I can pop into ticketed sessions that I otherwise would not have been able to get into.
In that light, I thought I might throw it out there to the readership here (whatever that number might be) and ask if there were any topics that might be of specific interest to you. I am sitting down to plan my conference over the next two days, so here are the main headings that ASCD gives out:
- Creativity and 21st Century Skills
- From Research to Practice
- Networking Opportunities
- Urban Education
Navigating the ASCD website is proving to be a little tricky, but the sessions are all available for browsing if you are so inclined. On a personal level, my focus is going to be on visual literacy, critical thinking, assessment, and reading strategies. Yes, I know, rather narrow. If there is a session you see that might fit that bill, or something you would like some firsthand knowledge of, drop a comment and I’ll do my best to gather some firsthand info for you.
