NYSCATE 2007

NYSCATE 2007
Personal Powerful Moments



  • David Jake's session on Saturday was worth the price of admission.
  • Designing a digital video with Barb and Sue.
  • Richard Harlin's open source classroom was a mind stretcher
  • Meeting Brian C. Smith and his wife Wendy ~ he has been to Hammondsport, where I grew up, and we know some of the same folks.
  • Great conversation with Stephen, a college professor from Nazerath
  • figuring out Twitter and Ning
  • podcasting to my students from a cellphone using evoca and then posting it on Blackboard.
  • Will Richardson's focus session and being involved in the live UStream TV show.
  • being able to stand on stage with Jean, Dodie, Michelle, and Diane to receive the ePal award.
  • Getting to know Tim DiScipio, co founder of ePals. Thanks for lunch.
  • Working with Rob, the video editing guru.
  • Sitting alone in the back of the Lilac Ballroom watching Marco Torres. I was absolutely blown away by his students work and found myself shedding a tear when he spoke about his own children.
  • Playing the Riverside Convention Center's Steinway & Sons Grand Piano after hours ~ unbelievably crisp tone.
  • Spending time with Jean and having some great conversations.
  • Being able to talk with David Jakes and Will Richardson just before the final Keynote.
  • Some quality time spent with my Uncle Jim and Aunt Bobbie, thanks for the room.
  • Randomly meeting Deb Stephens, a Broome Tioga BOCES employee that works with Macs and digital videos.

  1. Wow - as sson as I have more time I will be going through this stuff. Marco Torres is one of the keynotes for TCEA this year so hopefully I will get the honor of seeing him in person too.
