Thursday 1st May sees the second BYOD conference happening in Auckland; BYOD 2104 - Making it Mobile. The conference is run by Learning Network and is a great opportunity to take part in a range of PD around bring your own devices (BYOD).
I have the opportunity to present at the very first conference last year at Albany Senior High, where I ran 2 sessions. A session on Evernote and another on Self Management and BYOD. The day was packed with loads of people attending and a great selection of presenters.
BYOD 2014 is no different from last year, with a huge assortment of amazing presenters sharing their knowledge with you. A hugely inspirational line up that includes some of my favourite twitterers and bloggers: Helen King, Allanah King, Dorothy Burt, Fiona Grant, Barbara Reid, JJ Purton Jones, Stephen Lethbridge, Luke Sumich, and more. There is a huge selection of strands that suit everyone from the classroom teacher through to principals. Summerland Primary also has 3 other presenters which are worth a looksie - Innes Nisbet is our music specialist, Janet Shepherd is our art specialist and Luke Sumich our principal are all presenting as well.
This year I am presenting with my colleague Jessicca Vidal, who I presented with at uLearn 2013. An amazing year 3/4 classroom teacher who has a lot of amazing teaching and learning happening with her students. We will be presenting about how we utilise BYOD in our classrooms and some of the tools we are using to help students understand the tools that they have available to them and to become more self-managing with their devices.
