Come to the LearnLaunch Conference from February 1-2 in Cambridge! LearnLaunch grew out of EdTechup, and it’s very cool to see how it’s supporting the growth of educational technology. I have a soft spot for EdTechup because attending the 2011 conference exposed me to the educational technology space and inspiring me to start blogging in early 2012. I did initially start Appetite for Instruction as a food blog, but the “instruction” took over after I started attending EdTechup meetups, tweeting with other math teachers, and exploring the math teacher blogosphere. A colleague asked me recently how I get involved in so many cool opportunities, and I replied, “I just keep my eyes open for them.” It would have been really easy to sleep in during the day of the 2011 conference…making the effort to go was worth the few extra cups of Earl Grey tea consumed that morning!
Plus, yours truly is speaking on a panel 🙂
