What better way to start a new year than with some new conferences.
January began with MiTE 2018 in Galway where I presented on Virtual Fieldtrips and Coding. Both have become big interests of mine and I was honoured to have been asked to present at them.
The great thing about conferences like MiTE is that it is a global conference so educators from all over the world come together to create content, collaborations and meaningful conversations.
My coding workshop at MiTE was just a warmnup for the main event of the month which was an amazing opportunity I was given to present at the Apple store in Regent St during BETT week.
The workshop was a couple of months in the planning and featured both my story as an educator as well as the impact coding has had on my students followed by a workshop in functions and loops.
Opportunities like this don’t come by often and I was really grateful to have been given the chance to present at this one.
