In 2016, I went with two of my co-workers to the PLTW Summit in Indianapolis. We presented 4 sessions and had a great time. This year I am attending/presenting solo and working on my networking skills. This post is a documentation of my experience at the 2017 PLTW Summit.

I love talking about my gamified class! Whether it is a conference presentation, a county PD, or talking to teachers in a small group, someone wants to know how to do the same thing in their class. When I start talking about that I inevitably have to explain how the internet works. Here is my oversimplified version of how a website works, this is intended to give a teacher the vocab they need to know in order to move forward with setting up a gamified class.

A few years ago I lost the high-quality versions of photos of my son. My Aperture Vault got messed up somehow and I had no way to get those photos back. That started my quest to never lose a file again, that quest ended when I found Backblaze.
