- Thought from keynote speaker Peter H. Reynolds, "Don't ask people what they do, ask them what their mission is."
- You can be taught at any time of your life and learn.
- $10.00 for a lunch? Not even a homemade cookie...boo.
- Like the teacher who framed the picture of the dot, recognize all the accomplishments of students as the start of something great. You aren't hanging up art- you are displaying the possibilities.
- Ask your friends to search "Egypt" on Google and compare the results. You may not see it but you aren't getting the same results. Google is, in a way, controlling what we learn.
- According to a recent French study comprehension reading an iPad vs. a traditional newspaper is 20% less.
- Sites want people to click on things. Clicks equal money- not better learning opportunities. Your brain has to decide what to do when it comes to a click opportunity, which distracts from real content comprehension.
- Do you want your students to be able to find stuff or do you want them to be able to think?
- No matter how much you pre-plan what sessions you are going to attend, you change your mind. It's nice to have a good mix of heavy philosophy sessions and fun web 2.0 tech.
- A lot of people
