Everything's Free! Now What?

Yesterday, I had the privilege of giving the keynote talk at MOREnet MITC. The focus of the talk was on free web resources that address five challenges all educators face. Prior to the resource sharing portion, I shared a bit about my school's policies regarding Internet filtering, cell phones, and how those policies came to be. The slide deck from my talk is embedded below.
Everything's Free! Now What?

On Sunday, I ran a pre-conference workshop titled Lesson Plan Rehab. The resources from that workshop are available here.

After the keynote on Monday I gave a short presentation about making videos with web-based tools. The resources from that session are here.

Come See Me at MOREnet MITC in October

I've known about this for quite a while, but I couldn't make any official announcements until today. I am going to be the keynote speaker at MOREnet's MITC conference in Missouri on October 4. The title of my keynote is Everything is Free! Now What? I will also be running a pre-conference session (title: Lesson Plan Rehab) on October 3 and post-keynote session (title: Creating Videos to Demonstrate Learning). If you're within driving distance of Osage Beach, Missouri come on down.

I'm also slated to be the keynote speaker for another conference later in October, but I can't say which conference yet other than it's in New England. I'll also be speaking at ACTEM's annual conference in October and at CECA's conference also in October. Yes, October is a busy month for me. Fortunately, my school is willing to work with me for the time out of my classroom and I've been able to arrange my schedule so that I only miss four days from my classroom.

If you're interested in having me speak at your school or at your conference, please contact me through my Work With Me page where you'll find a list of topics that I'm happy to address as well as a list of some of the other schools and conferences I've worked with. I don't have a lot of room left in my schedule for August through December, but I can probably fit-in three to five dates.
