best ncetc experience

the last ncetc conference i attended has been a few years ago and i remember that handhelds were all the rage. many sessions discussed how to use handheld technology in classroom instruction. although it was very facinating, i had trouble buying into the idea...all i could envision were a classroom of students trying to word process on teenie tiny keyboards attached to teenie tiny handhelds. i wasn't in the school system then and wondered how well this resource has beeb used since.

one of the handheld sessions, however, discussed the use of ebooks and as a budding media coordinator, i got real excited. this year i am pumped about blogging and all sorts of other resources that can enhance our students' classroom experiences. i love the concept that blogging allows students to become info producers vs. info gatherers. as a media coordinator i try to stay intouch with the evolution of the info cycle and how it can be utilized. i am looking forward to the rest of the week and my return to school to share all that i have learned.
