O.K., so maybe I was crazy to think that I would be able to publish a blog post every day of the NCTE conference starting Thursday. Although I did publish something quick on Thursday I wrote nothing yesterday. Not only is the wifi connection unpredictable in the convention center, but yesterday I left my hotel room at 7:30 am and didn’t return till after 9:30 pm. Thinking I could get some work done, I took a hot shower and got into bed with my computer. By 10:00 I was fast asleep.
Today was a similarly busy day except that I was able to take a break for a couple of hours.
I haven’t taken too many notes at the sessions I’ve attended but I have a lot of ideas percolating in my brain. Since I have a long plane ride back to Quito I will be sorting out some of these ideas to figure out how they connect to my particular situation. The sessions I attended have allowed me to make connections, ask questions, and reflect on the teaching and learning process thoughtfully and critically. I will be posting more about this next week.
