Well, ten or so more educators know about Web logs in the classroom. Didn’t get the 20 I’d hoped for, but it still pretty neat to watch their reactions as I went through the presentation. It’s a pretty easy sell when people see what can be done here. I think most of those in attendance were pretty impressed and wanting to know more. We’ll see how many of them take me up on my offer on some play space.
Only one of the participants even knew what a Web log was, said someone in his English Department had been using one with some success. The rest obviously were there due to my scintillating description in the program!
Didn’t realize that today was the anniversary of JFK’s demise until I rode past Dealey Plaza on the train and saw all sorts of people milling about at the spot where he was killed. I’m going to try to head to the museum tomorrow.
At any rate, lots of kids and yearbook companies crammed into the Hyatt and not much in the way of technology being discussed or presented. I’m wondering how many people will show up tomorrow and what their reaction will be.
This is what I need to do more of when I get the time (laugh). At some point, I’m going to have to get to that statistical analysis of what exactly is happening with all my efforts. Some are proving better than others, that’s certain. I need to roll up the sleeves and start to figure out why. But, not now…
