Once again I had the opportunity to attend the Nebraska Educational Technology Association Conference in Omaha this past week.  As always, I am impressed with this hidden gem (for some people) held here in the Heartland.  I had the pleasure of listening to keynote speakers Rushton Hurley and Richard Byrne.  I attended several informative sessions on hand held devices, 1:1 programs, and took part in a great discussion on moving forward with reluctant staff.  Of course I was able to network with several colleagues from around the state and to renew old acquaintances and made some new friends along the way.

If you are in the region, I highly recommend a trip to Omaha next spring (April 26-27, 2012) to attend the NETA conference.  You will be amazed at the resources you will have access to, the speakers and presenters that will share valuable information, and the power of face to face networking.  You can learn more information about NETA at the following url:  http://www.netasite.org.

See you next year!

I am sharing the following list that I gathered at the NETA conference.  Many of these tools I have used, but there are a few I plan to try out and share my thoughts on over the coming days.  For now, I share the raw list in case you are interested in giving them a try along with me.  Let me know your thoughts and experiences so that we can learn together.  Thanks!

Had a great day at NETA yesterday.  Excellent breakout sessions, good networking, and there are some great things going on around the state.  I hope to get to the vendor floor to look at the various offerings in more detail today.  I am hoping to get to some digital citizenship sessions today to bring back information  to our district.  Again, my notes can be found at my PBWiki:  http://hokanson.pbwiki.com

I sit waiting for Will Richardson’s keynote this morning here in beautiful Omaha, Nebraska at the NETA Conference.  This should be a good conference as I have heard many positive things about it.  My notes for the day can be found at my PBWiki; so, if you are interested head over to get the details.

I’m off to my first NETA conference this week!

NETA: “The Nebraska Educational Technology Association is a grassroots organization open to everyone interested in sharing information about using technology in the educational process.”

“Our membership is comprised of approximately 1800 members representing classroom teachers from kindergarten through college, administrators, technology specialists, researchers, and preservice educators.

Our members are leading the charge toward the future by helping educators learn to infuse innovative technologies into the learning process. You’ll find us working year round to support educational technology, but our favorite time of year comes in the spring when nearly 2000 of us gather at our annual Spring Conference for two days of national speakers, engaging breakout sessions, hands-on workshops and an exhibition hall filled with all the best education technology vendors.

NETA is an official Affiliate of the International Society for Technology in Education. We join approximately 70 other affiliated educational technology associations from around the world in the improvement of teaching and learning through the use of technology.”

I will be attending the conference with four other colleagues; plus, we have a few others who will join the mix along the way. I plan to take notes on my PBWiki and to share the exciting events and knowledge that I gain at the gathering. Stay posted for information here at H I T too!!!
