Thanks to educator/technology expert John Pederson and the good folks associated with the WiscNet monthly webinars, the “Alice Project” was the core topic for this month’s conference call & on-line chat this past Thursday afternoon.
Needless to say, this was very flattering given how new (and in-process) the students’ experiences/projects are at this point.
While it was flattering to have individuals from around Wisconsin (in particular) and around the country/world take part in the webinar focus on my teaching/technology goals, the highlight was having 2 students eloquently describe their perspective to an audience of adults/professionals.
Congrats to Amber W. and Kierston R. for their terrific answers in representing the voice of the students. I couldn’t have been more proud of you guys!
BTW, here’s a little bit about WiscNet:
