Our group of 21 is just one day back from the NCaect conference. Most of our conference-goers have updated their thoughts in their blogs. I will share a few. Here’s an impressive and optimistic post from Lisa of MMS, the school that won the trip for five this year:
I heard a lot at the conference about how no one seems to have answers on what it will take to bring change. The answers are here. They are in us. They are in every spark of an idea that comes to fruition in problem-solving products by students. Every time a teacher shares his/her idea with another teacher and that teacher in turn takes steps to bring that idea to pass in the classroom. The answers are in every administrator who stands in budget meetings telling the story of technology usage and needs in our schools in the face of a skeptical audience. The answers are in every storyteller and teacher in the blogosphere who pass on their knowledge to one more person. We are the ones who will bring change and we must keep doing what we’re doing. We must continue to be vocal, telling our lawmakers the story. If we continue, we will also grow louder and we will be heard. I have to believe that.
How impressive, optimistic, and fitting!
