Project Foundry Unconference in Milwaukee
just finished day 1 of the Project Foundry Unconference. This year marks the 2nd annual event. It is a great time, with like minded educators who come together to talk progressive education and how it melds with the software Project Foundry.
Our keynote speaker today (for the 2nd year in a row) was Peter Pappas. You can check him out at: http://www.peterpappas.blogs.com. He has some great things to say about the practice on reflection, relevance and rigor. Once we deconstructed these words, the groups got a good idea about how these terms are thrown around in education circles, but we fail to define what they actually mean.
Overall, it was a successful day. Lots of friends here, coming together to help make what we all do better (using Project Foundry).
