Wow! It was a great two days at the Midsouth Technology Conference 2011 last Thursday and Friday.  Our students and alumni presented 8 different sessions across the two days.  You can see the presentations and the links to all of our resources on my professional development wiki.  Our students and alumni did a fantastic job. We met so many great teachers, counselors, instructional support folks, and library media specialists who had so many great ideas.

So HUGE shout-outs to Dr. Julie Forbess, Dr. Corey Johnson, Dorian Brown, Angela Christopher, Carmen Weaver, Joseph Sweeney, Logan Prevette, Lakavious Jones, Fatima Ferguson, Suha Tamim, and Shelly Burr.  I had many people in the audiences come up to me and tell me how good these folks did.  You all should be so proud of yourselves. Many of these folks’ presentations were “packed houses” with few if any available seats. So, we’re talking about 40 to 50 folks in their sessions. I also had a prospective student come up to me and inquire out the IDT doctoral program because he saw our students conducting research and presenting this research in professional venues.

I also have a slideshow of photos from across the two days inside Flickr. You can see some of the great works our students have done.
