An Oscar Type Moment

Mar 11

During any talk or presentation I give I make sure that people can reach out to me to share a story, ask a question and even challenge me. I value the ways in which we don’t need to let a one time presentation but a one time presentation. Recently, someone shared a great story and I thought I’d pass it along here.

Cross posted at Tech & Learning After attending my 5th ISTE event in a row, I always enjoy reading various reflections of the event.
