Tech Fest was a wild experience. I co-presented with Rory from Mumbai, India at Tech Fest in California. I did this digitally right here from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Rory and I planned for this event over Skype and Google Hangouts. On the day of Tech Fest, we entered the Google Hangout which had a camera on a room of teachers and several other digital members in the hangout.
Chris Long, the organizer of Tech Fest, ran our session as a Q&A about gamification. This opportunity to talk about a subject I am very passionate about, gamification, was also a new way to present. Below is the google video of our presentation. This was our first time presenting over the web and I think we both did a good job. The topic is a large one and is not going to be covered in a 30 minute Google hangout. I really enjoyed collaborating with people from around the world on this project and loved how much I grew as a connected educator.
