SXSW Edu: My First Time!

In my first year as an instructional technology specialist, I've had lots of FIRSTs. My first trip to ISTE (in Atlanta), my first trip to TCEA (in Austin) and very first SXSW Edu!

The opportunity presented itself when my fabulous PLN (courtesy of Twitter) was chatting about SXSWEdu. A great sister, from another mother, Krista Tyler, posted that she won a ticket to SXSWEdu and I thought: why not? What could applying hurt? Right?

So, this great company, TES Global, came up with this idea to send 100 educators to SXSWEdu. All you had to do was show them and the world (via Twitter) how you innovate the classroom experience with your most creative #TESInnovates post!

Some of the ways I try to INNOVATE the classroom...

I'm extremely thankful to be one of the 100 educators selected to attend SXSWEdu and I look forward to sharing my experience with my PLN, district and school!
