Get a conference full of teachers who are searching for what will make there classroom better and then keep them separated from each other and not learning from this talented pool of people and you have the modern conference. All to often we go to these conferences and are asked to learn from a Phd student who does not face the real world pressures of teaching in the classroom or a company pitching something you can buy and probably not afford. Here is where Teachers Talking Shop – An Exchange of Ideas will help. Moderators Michael Matera and Chuck Taft hope to bring dedicated teachers together to swap effective classroom strategies and lesson ideas.
The session was great! People really got into the exchange of ideas. Look at the link below to read through some of the ideas that were shared.
