Erin Gruwell shared her inspiring story and the stories from her students as they learned a love of literature and to develop their voices. She showed several video clips that were heartbreaking in their honesty and empowerment.
We left NECC 09 energized and ready to develop the stories of our students. Her work with the 150 teachers across the country on the use of technology reminded me that despite our level of technological sophistication, we all have hurdles and challenges to overcome.
If they can do it, we can do it! *cheers*
I had a grand time working at the Second Life Playground and want to thank Lisa Linn, Scott Merrick, Susan Toth-Cohen, Peggy Sheehy, Bernajean Porter, Marianne Malstrom, Lloyd, Laura Sheehy, Pamela and our wonderful Second Life educators!
See you at ISTE 2010 in Denver! *waves*
