Another Summer Conference in the Books

It’s DLC week at Fordham.  This is my favorite week of the year because I get to see some of the DLC teachers IN PERSON for three days in a row!

Tuesday we prepped for our annual conference, which was really, just amazing.  I love these teachers.  I love their passion.  I love that they are willing to take risks and share their practice so that others can be inspired by them.

Amanda Lenhart started us off with an interesting talk about teens and social media use.  Our #FordhamDLC chat came alive as participants digested the stats she shared, and, as one person said, it was on fire the rest of the day.

Here is a Storify of the day.  Give it a read.  You’ll learn something.  I did putting it together.

Thursday we gathered for a writing workshop, and as always, these teacher-writers inspired me (hence my commitment to finish and publish my Storify).

We will be looking for new members to join our group  in September.  I can’t wait to see what we learn next together.
