I was proud to be a presenter @ the first annual SUECON (Southern Utah Educators Conference), in St. George. It's always a pleasure to represent the SLCSD. The paradox shift I encountered this year was knowing most of the presenters from around the state (my Ed Tech counterparts), but NOT knowing any teachers.
Jaime Casap, the Google Education Evangelist, was my favorite keynote speaker. I was actually invited to a dinner with him by the UCET board and UEN. Didn't sit @ his table or speak w/ him, but was there!
Coolest thing, other than presenting, was eating @ the Anasazi Steakhouse. They heat these stones to about 700 degrees Fahrenheit, and slap your meat order on it. You have to eat fast, so that it doesn't burn. It was delicious!
