My first keynote went well! I was invited to speak at the Kern Rural Residency Program by the Department of Teacher Education at California State University, Bakersfield. My talk was centered around the idea that as teachers we are both a scientist and artist. We get our science training through our credentialing and induction programs, but the artistry of teaching happens when we are finally in the classroom. You can view the entire keynote below.

 

 

So you made it this far…and the world is coming to an end! To complete this stop you will make an image or video using a zombie or robot augmented reality app and then tweet it to #EDTE4200. Yes you can include a friend on this mission and make it count for both of you!
