SITE 2008 Conference

It is good to be back. I'd forgotten what a warm and caring community I had found in the Society for Technology and Teacher Education (SITE). I attended these conferences every year from the mid-90s through all of the PT3 grants (2006). Last year I missed the conference because I was in Asia/Australia/New Zealand. Some highlights from this conference (besides lots of wonderful networking!):
I'll have to plan to attend SITE next year (I am advocating for a Retired membership and conference fee rate). I am starting to form an idea for a distributed research project where educators from across the world can participate in Researching Lifelong Portfolios and Web 2.0. More to be revealed in the next month or so.

I, too, had attended most of the SITE conferences before I retired from university teaching. You are right, Helen, it was personally and professionally rewarding to be with this group over the last 3 days. Like you, I hope there will be a better fee structure for us retirees.

I have not looked yet but I hope that Barbara Means Power Point from the opening keynote will be available. It really was thought provoking.
