The Palm Beach County Tech Conference- Storified!

I was fortunate to have attended The 2012 School District of Palm Beach County Technology Conference on March 26th. 

This conference was very impressive and FREE.  What an amazing job by Lee Kolbert and team!  And the punchline?  I got to meet some rock stars.  It was a sharefest with Dean Shareski, who I have deemed The Sharemeister and the ever-resourceful and very generous Jerry Blumengarten, pictured with me below.

I do have a few regrets as I could not stay the entire day.  I wasn't able to see the dynamite sessions by Kris or Abby and Lily (Sorry guys!)  I missed other fabulous events including the closing event by dynamic speaker Travis Allen.  Luckily, I did catch his earlier session.   Oh, and I missed the iPad raffle. Darn! 
Opening Keynote,  Rushton Hurley, was a dynamic, brilliant and hilarious speaker.  I also want to share an important quote from his talk: "I am eating granola!"  Confused?  Ask me!

Catch the conference Twitter chat here on Storify and continue the conversation on Twitter using the hashtag #sdpbctechconf.

Palm Beach County ROCKS! #ThankYou

  1. It was wonderful meeting you Laurie. I always enjoy meeting my PLN in person. Glad I heard Rushton and Dean who are both in my PLN. Getting together with many of my PLN in Philadelphia (#edcampSS & #ascd12) Always enjoy seeing my #edchat buddies @web20classroom, @TomWhitby and @mbteach) and this conference exhausted but definitely gladdened me.

    1. I look forward to working with you again via SM or F2F! Thank you for taking the time to stop by here! :)

  2. Laurie, this is such a beautiful blog! You are amazingly creative :)!
