Ms. Simpson, Ms. Shawe and I are attending the annual Learning and the Brain conference here in the city at the Fairmont Hotel. I’m wearing two hats here: I’m attending talks and thinking about how the conference theme (Educating for Creative Minds) impacts our community, and I’m also representing my graduate program, which is a co-sponsor of the conference. It’s kind of a homecoming event: it’s fun to get to talk about my graduate work and how it informs my current practice. I love to recruit people to the Harvard Ed School, but I also love to be able to articulate and reflect upon what brought me to my work in education in the first place.
Have I mentioned lately that I love conferences? These things just inspire me.
Stay tuned here for live blog posts from this conference, battery life and wifi permitting. Enjoy!
