This morning begin with a faculty meeting. I received information that is needed for the post-conference for the schools. We chatted with each other and I learned that FVSU and Columbus State had a PT3 grant. Georgia State University is up on Technology. We suggested that visit each other to see what each one have.
I did little sight-seeing today instead I attend several sessions that I was personally interested in at the same time will help me in the education.
I attended several sessions on the Palm. One illustrated the basic functions of the palm. The changes that has been made to the newer models, software, and companies that have software for the palm. The other session was on the software for science and mathematics. These sessions were very helpful. However, the time was to short. I suggested to the presenters that a 2-3 hours workshop is needed.
I attended the Free Java Applets to Jump-Start your Math and Science Lessons. This was great for the secondary mathematics people. The presenter illustrated the use of web-sites to enhance different topics in mathematics and science. I have the hand-out with a list of links for this topic.
Another session that interests me was the Grant Writing sessions. A good overview was presented. If you are interested in writing a grant Lisa and Kelly can help you.
The closing session was fun. They showed the film that the students made during the conference. A great overview was present for next year conference in New Orleans and finally the door prizes.
We had fun at the dinner for the group. Completing the evaluation is always tough. Discussing with your group what should we do for the post-conference is going to be a challenge.
I enjoyed working with everyone and I hope this is not the end.
