Conference on Instructional Technology 2008

That tiny speck next to the podium is me. I gave my presentation "Students' Technology Literacy: Assumptions, Expectations & the Truth" at the 2008 CIT conference at Genesee Community College in Batavia, NY. I had rehearsed my presentation in a classroom, so I was a little unprepared for being scheduled in the big main theatre.
Turn out was good (I ran out of handouts and needed to post them on the web for others to access), I got great questions at the end of the presentation and later in the conference a few folks came up to me and said the liked my presentation. So over all I think the presentation went well.
The conference also included some great entertainment - a band called Fully Clothed Gents, which is a Bare Naked Ladies tribute band. And I picked up a few technology and teaching tips and tricks to try out.
Damon and the dogs survived pretty well on their own, and Damon was even able to kept the garden alive (except for one small pack of impatiens sitting in the shadows of the greenhouse). The Hops plants are doing well and the largest has already reached the top of the greenhouse.
