Sometimes being a student can be stressful. Especially when working a full time job and going to school. But the truth is, I love to learn. When you are learning something that is meaningful and applicable to your life and your interests, it's just plain fun.
This past weekend, I participated in a conference that our school runs, called ASB Un-Plugged. The conference is a showcase and learning experience for school who are interested in becoming a one-to-one laptop school. The school was filled with international educators who all wanted to learn about how to leverage social technologies in their school. Some of the speakers I was able to see include Doug Johnson, Scott Klososky, Andrew Churches and Kim Cofino. As a library student working on my School Media specialization there were so many valuable ideas and tools I've learned about. If you want to learn some of the great things we learned about this weekend, check out this great video made by Kevin Roberts.
What this weekend makes me realize though, is that I truly love learning and I am excited that I will continue to have opportunites to learn. Whether I'm in school, going to conferences or connecting with my personal learning network.
