Letter from the Chair: Brent Zweifel
Dear C2C Members:
This Spring / Summer 2016 edition of the C2C Digital Magazine is amazing! There is so much variety that is jam-packed into it. There are articles about augmented reality, how-to guides, legality issues, plus much more. To be honest, I would be surprised if there was a person that didn’t find at least one article of interest to them. I believe the subcommittee members of the digital magazine knocked it out of the ball park! Thank you!
Directly following this Letter is a small article about a video interview of our Keynote Speaker, Richard Byrne. If you have not visited his blog, freetech4teachers.com, or checked out his Facebook page, you need to listen to the interview to understand his passion for education and the use of technology in the classroom.
In about a month #SIDLIT2016 will be happening. I am proud that for the first time, we are offering another format for educators to be anywhere in the world and participate in SIDLIT. Live Stream is now an option. Not all the sessions will be live streamed, but a person will be able to watch the Keynote Address, about 10 presentations, and the Closing.
It has been exciting, stressful, and enjoyable being the Chairperson for C2C/ 2016 SIDLIT. It would not have been enjoyable and exciting if it wasn’t for the fabulous people putting hours after hours into making #SIDLIT2016. To all of you on the Steering Committee, I salute you for your dedication and support. For the stressful part, if it wasn’t there, I would be worried.
Please, enjoy the rest of this magazine. For me, this magazine gives just a small insight of what there is to come for #SIDLIT2016. If you haven’t registered for SIDLIT, don’t worry, you still have time, but don’t wait too long.
