Dakota Day 2

No time for touring today. I spent all day with 70 teachers of the North Dakota Association for Technology Leadership. Very loose agenda; it was more like a conversation where we meandered among a load of links I has set up ahead of time. I learned about a couple of resources suggested and demoed by the participants: Kartoo, a cool search engine with a graphical interface and IKeepBookmarks, a pretty nice alternative for Backflip.

By the end of the day we were all jazzed by the possibility of developing a dozen or more WebQuests about the North Dakota segment of the Lewis and Clark expedition. If Craig Nansen can get some funding, I might be spending a week here next summer with some of this same group cranking out lessons in time for the bicentennial. I'd be delighted to return.

Off to San Antonio in the morning.
