Conceal & Reveal: Explorations into Identity
The highlight of my summer was attending the Microsoft Innovative Education Forum in Seattle and the most fun part of the forum was meeting 100 amazingly innovative teachers from around the United States. As part of the forum, we were grouped into Learning teams and were assigned to go on an excursion to a Seattle point of interest and collaboratively develop some sort of technology integrated project which we would all engage in this year with our students. It was a relief to complete and submit the project, Concealing and Revealing, and do final revisions to the shell of our wordpress site last week. There will be a selection from all the teams submissions and the winning project will attend the Microsoft Partners in Learning Global Forum in Washington, D.C. in early November. I had the great fortune to work with two educators from Seattle, a student from Seattle and an amazing arts educator from Utah in creating this project.
