SXSWedu promotion?

Hey everybody!

I was at the SXSWedu barbeque and my dad was speaking to the ‘executive producer’ about my website. This website! and he was thinking of putting me up for a panel next year about this site! And my about this experience! Thank you so much Ron Reed! Would this be counted as a promotion for my student career? I think it should! Whoo, this is awesome!!

Day Three (day two of SXSWedu)

I am right now in the conference: Are we there yet?.

I think it is quite interesting. It is about how Project Red is trying to help push up education without just adding technology. Technology is not the answer. Its the way you use it.

There is a page about this in the links section.

What we did on Day Two

Here is a list of what we did today. This could be called our schedule.

Schedule:

  • 8:30-10:00– Opening session. Super boring. I totally zoned out so I have no idea about what they were talking about.
  • 10:15-11:15– Turning STEM into STEAM. Very, very cool. I absolutely loved it and I took a lot of notes on it that I am happy to  share with anybody!
  • 11:30-12:30– Are students leaving us in the  digital dust?  I thought that this one was very awesome. They had a bunch of students there that they asked different questions to and I loved hearing the conversation. They also had a little website thingy that we could put our thoughts about the conference onto. Here’s the link to the conversation: www.todaysmeet.com/sxswedu you are going to have to scroll all the way down to the begining of the conversation.
  • 12:30-2:00– Lunch Break. Crepes anybody? Awesome!
  • 2:00-3:00– 21st Century Skills. All it was, was some students explaining their project of the future is now.
  • 3:15-4:15– Education thru Robotics. It was pretty cool how they explained how we could be bettering education thru robotics. They really explained it well.
  • 4:30-5:30– Keynote Speaker-Levar Burton. No, not any of Tim Burton’s brothers (if he has any). This guy created the TV show ‘Reading Rainbow’. Now its becoming an app!
  • That is the end of the conferences for today!
