The first full week in November is always my favorite. As an Instructional Technology Specialist (1998 - 2003), classroom teacher (2003-2007), and Media Specialist (2007 - present) I have found GaETC to be one of the most exciting and informative geek out three days to be found. I meet up with friends from other schools and other counties and we have a blast! There is so much to learn and absorb... I have to sleep several days after attending because my brain hurts!
I plan to share my notes with you on this blog and thought I would add them session by session. I THINK I'm going to make a separate blog entry for each session to make it easier to search and type! OK - my goal is to get this done before I retire (3 years, 10 months, and 17 days... but who's counting) AND yes, I have thought about "What will I do about GaETC when I retire?" I've already thought of that. VOLUNTEER!
