This past weekend DetentionSlip had the honor of attending the annual ASCD Conference in Orlando, FL. It is known on the streets as "The Baddest Education Conference in the Country." This years theme was Learning Beyond Boundaries. Hundreds of teachers and education specialists gathered for the variety of exhibits, workshops, and presentations to learn new methods of engaging the young pupils of the future. Of all the inspiring and creative ideas that ASCD packaged for this event, there was one minor oversight. As a free handout, all attendees received a bright, neon-green tote bag. These bags made conference-goers stand out like sore thumbs walking through the busy tourist district of Orlando. But with temperatures in the 80's, can you really blame them for cutting class?
Stay tuned for interviews with some of the more interesting minds from this conference.
