A colleague, Jess Oltman (@techwithmso), and I presented last week at the Christa McAuliffe Technology Conference on our experiences using GIS in the classroom. You can check out our presentation here. We had a few technical difficulties, because why wouldn't you at a technology conference. We rolled with it like we do in the classroom. Overall, it was a positive experience. I enjoyed sharing my love of GIS with others despite the challenges we had loading our presentation. I walked away at the end of the day with renewed excitement for some of my upcoming projects and additional ideas for more immersive gamification in my lessons .
