A few days ago, I had the chance to attend SeLNO, the Symposium for e-Learning in Northwestern Ontario. What a great opportunity to listen to fabulous presentations and share our knowledge. George Couros started things off with a keynote that emphasized the personal connections we can make with technology. It was absolutely lovely, but I could have used some tissues!
As with any conference, it is so difficult to select which sessions to attend. No matter how informative they are, you want to be in a few places at once. I’m looking forward to seeing reflections from other participants, to learn about a variety of topics that were covered at the conference.
Mark Carbone‘s presentation was incredibly useful; I learned about trends in education, SAMR, OSAPAC, OSSEMOOC, and so much more. Take a look at my sketchnote, which summarizes my thoughts:
I’m glad I took notes, because there are so many resources & ideas that I want to explore!
Kudos to the organizing committee ~ your hard work helped us all so much!

Assess continuously. Show growth. Show evidence. The importance of grades will fade. @gcouros#selno#sgdsb — Colleen Rose (@ColleenKR) April 30, 2015

“We stress importance of Ss creating a digital portfolio, but as an educator do you have one?” How will people learn about you? #selno
