Highlights: EdSurge Conference

What a fantastic time we had last weekend! If you just joined us on this blog, last weekend was the #EdSurge Summit at the AISD Performing Arts Center. Briefly this Summit aimed at uniting 'makers' and 'users' of technology under one roof with speed-dating style sessions. I also had the opportunity to present. If you missed it, don't worry: there will be a recap post next week (meanwhile here is the official recap).

 The one product that stood out for me was InsightADVANCE, a platform used to share filmed lessons with colleagues and appraisers. It can be used for observation, coaching, mentorship, etc. In the light of the new Professional Pathways for Teachers being implemented and our jobs as instructional coaches, it can be very beneficial to have such platforms. Keeping our classrooms open to colleagues helps to inspire others and overall, improve our practice.
