This week I am in beautiful Atlanta, Georgia, presenting at the GAETC conference. It is one of the most organized and interesting conferences I’ve been to and they’ve had some incredible presenters/keynotes.

I had six sessions which you can read about here, http://teacherrebootcamp.com/tag/gaetc13. Here are the resources for the Moving with Mobile Devices session in case you missed it. At GAETC, I tried collaborative note-taking with the 400 audience. We all took notes on one Google Doc. Scary, I know! However, it ended up being a great experience and many helped create notes and stories. Check out the document here, http://bit.ly/gaetc12. Thank you to @debra_robinson, Mary Bliss, Tina A., Kris @krismuir21, Joshua Bingham @jbingha1, Noel @mrsmainland, JJ taylor, @gena_jeselnik, @mrsmainland, @NikkiDRobertson, Shawn, @cmslibrarylady, @tiffssister, Kellie K., Faith, Shelly, @TechTeacherBerg, Susan T, Amanda Korell, and others who helped with the collaborative note-taking experience.
