I recently had the amazing opportunity to be 1 of 6 speakers at ShadowCon16.  The whole premise of ShadowCon is awesome and full credit goes to Zak Champagne, Mike Flynn, and Dan Meyer for having the vision and bringing this all together.

Conferences quickly become distant memories, however our three friends have found a way to extend the conference experience. Each of the six ShadowCon speakers shared a provocative 10-minute talk and then challenged the audience (YOU) with a Call to Action.

You can find my ShadowCon Talk here, along with my call to action and some extra tidbits. After watching my talk, please take the opportunity to respond to my call to action by posting your thoughts on the message board.

If my talk didn’t resonate with you and you don’t feel compelled to act…no worries because there 5 more chances to get connected.

Robert Kaplinsky – Empower

Gail Burrill – Math is Awesome: Let’s Teach so Our Students Get It

Kaneka Turner – Extending the Invitation to Be Good at Math

I have purposefully closed comments for this post in hope that you will continue the conversation on the webpages that NCTM has graciously shared.

I look forward to learning and growing together as all of us are smarter than one of us.
