I’m on vacation in sunny Palm Springs. How ironic that the CUE conference is being held this week at the Palm Springs Convention center.
CUE is the California association for educational technology, or Computer Using Educators. Looks like a big conference – there are a couple interesting keynote speakers:
- Marco Torres is a teacher/technology director/professional filmmaker in LA who has had success using technology to empower minority students.
- Diane Ravitch is a history of education professor in New York who has written recently about the crumbling of education. She is also an outspoken critic of NCLB and charter schools, and a vehement supporter of teachers.
I won’t be attending any of these – how odd. These keynotes are very temping….. but vacation is vacation!
