NICE meeting on Ides of March

The NICE (Northern Illinois Computing Educators) meeting held this week included two informative speakers:
  • Maureen Miller, Learning Coordinator, Instructional Technology, District 112: she reviewed the North Shore School District's work to develop Power Standards and showed videos on Teaching in the 21st Century. Here is a link to her presentation and the Sir Ken Robinson video she showed.
  • And Rachel Gressel, Spanish Teacher, Adlai E. Stevenson High School, district 125 who gave an overview of using Technology in her classroom, including using Wordle, iPads, and Google Survey forms. Here is a link to her materials - Powerful Formative Assessment Weebly.
If you have not been attending the NICE meetings, try to do so -- the next one is in May at Maine South.
