This is my last workshop before heading to North Carolina tomorrw. There always seems to be so much to learn and not enough time. I think that is what keeps me coming back to these conferences. It just takes one new nugget of great information and I want to keep learning more. It reminds me of golf. It just takes one great hole, and I want to keep playing more.
I have attended workshops by Joe Dockery before. I took the Flash class tonight. He has a great way of facilitating his classes. He allows students to work at their own pace and yet require certain assignments be completed by a specific date. I liked the way he has the students start off with drawing skills before really getting into Flash skills. He always has great resources for teachers. I had time to look at Adobe Flash CS4 and explore some of the differences between CS4 and CS2 (which is the version I am currently teaching). Students really like working with Flash. He had some great student project ideas.
I posted a lot of the new websites I learned about at this conference to my delicious account and included a link on the right.
