St. Patrick’s Day; a beautiful day here that was celebrated in a different way this year; a conference, inside, oblivious of the weather but fantastic nonetheless. Tom Crawford and I put on our first Visual Thinking Conference at Oakland Schools on March 17, 2012. Like all of Tom’s projects it was brilliant.
We had a fantastic group of presenters: Jamie Nast, Cliff Atkinson, Brandy Agerbeck, Ryan Coleman, Karl Gude, Laura Johnson, Tom Crawford, Conan Heiselt, Matt Pierce, and Chad Simon. They covered many interesting topics from autism to idea mapping to Power-Points and much in between. Brandy also graphically captured the keynote presentations (see above). The audience were made up of business people and educators, with Tech Smith sponsoring much of the conference.
Thanks to everyone who presented, attended, and facilitated to make this a great day.
Next year we will do it again, April 13, 2012.
