Critical Transformations

Getting excited now about attending the ASCD Annual Conference Critical Transformations, in San Antone, TX, next week. It’s the first time I’ve been able to attend a conference that is, by all accounts, huge!, attracting some of the biggest names in the big issues of curriculum: differentiation, mapping, standards etc.

I haven’t had a lot of time to think about what sessions I’m going to attend and am conscious that I want to leave some quality work for my Literature for the three lessons I miss with them. I’m thinking of doing a couple of Adobe Connect presentations to introduce them to the next key topic and perhaps some audio discussions of key documents. I think I’ll have plenty of time on the plane trip (Melbourne>LA, LA>San Antone) to read the session guide pretty thoroughly!

And, I’m staying at the historic Menger Hotel, just across the road from The Alamo (see pic above of historic battle featuring Davy Crockett). I hope to be blogging about the sessions I attend, semi-live depending on bandwith, or certainly when I return.
