Special Edition of the Weekly Byte 2.10.09

Hello again from lovely Hershey, PA!

Today's keynote speaker was Dan Pink. He is the author of several books most notably for educators would be A Whole New Mind. He gave an update of how society is changing and how we as educators should change how we teach and what we teach.
Notes from Dan Pink Session

I also attended a few sessions on Professional Development. I will be bringing many of the ideas back to FR to share in my Professional Development sessions.

New Tools to check out
Diigo, online bookmarking tool that allows you and your students to organize sites and share them.
