This is my 4th straight year of getting to attend the Northwest Council for Computer Education or NCCE’s three-day conference (although last year I was only able to attend for one day)! This year it was in Portland, OR. NCCE goes back and forth between Seattle and Portland and this year it was Portland’s turn to host the three-day conference.
I tend to use Twitter to take notes because I can take quick notes and focus more on being present in the session or workshop.This year I got to present again! It was so cool, I just love being able to share something that works so well for me. I led a workshop on how to use 3D GameLab to gamify any course. 3D GameLab has performed excellently for me as a Learning Management System (LMS) that automates a lot of what I do to gamify my courses.
This year was amazing. I can honestly say that every session, workshop, and keynotes I attended was amazing! I got a lot out the entire time I was there. As I reflect on all the great sessions and workshops I noticed the theme that bubbles up was student engagement. What I’m leaving with wanting to pursue more in-depth is definitely STEM, Robotics, and Programming. I have ideas that I want to make come true for my students.
Here are my Twitter notes from all the great sessions, workshops, and Keynotes that I participated in:
