MACUL16 Reflections and Take-Aways

The Michigan Association for Computer Users in Learning (MACUL) 2016 conference in Grand Rapids, MI, was, in one word, AWESOME! I was able to attend Wednesday - Friday and came away with so much. Big ideas, new technologies, makerspaces, student showcase, workshops and even the tried and true speaker-led sessions. This is a state-wide conference where you learn from national edtech leaders, in-the-trenches classroom teachers, tech-guru administrators, creative students and get to experience new and innovative technology gear in the vendor area. I loved it! By Friday afternoon my feet were tired and sore but my MACUL issued bag was full of goodies and my brain was (and still is!) full of cool and inspiring new ideas. From Gamestar Mechanic to introduce the basics of programming games to Breakout EDU for a team-based classroom gaming experience. From Google Hangouts or Mystery Skype to Google Streetview to create photo spheres to share with the world! It’s gonna be a busy spring!
