David worked as a railroad mechanic and then at a creamery. He persisted in reading the books in her collection and became a voracious reader on the subject. Other favorite subjects early in his education were arithmetic and spelling. Chores were regularly assigned and rotated among all the children, and misbehavior was met with unequivocal discipline, usually from David.
I had a great time, even though I didn't win any prizes. I enjoyed being with my classmates from Grad School, meeting new people, and seeing old friends. I enjoyed attending the classes, learning about new technology for the classroom, wandering through the vendors, and getting free pencils.
You should see the pile of Apple pencils I got! He spoke all about the world of Web 2. He talked about websites like facebookdiggflickrcraigslistyoutubeslashdottripplannerprosperand goloco. Did you know 75 new blogs are created every minute?! Try listening to some interesting and informative podcasts like "Thinkin' and Drivin'".
David Pogue was hilarious! At the end of his presentation he sang a couple songs about technology. He changes the lyrics to well-known songs.
About half way through his song, members of the audience who had iPhones pulled them out and held them up, swaying to the beat of the song.

You know, like lighters were used in the olden days. We all started cracking up. I grabbed my new iPhone out of my bag, and joined the crowd! Pogue finally became aware of what was going on and had to stop playing to laugh at us too.
A video of his presentation will be available online soon.
When it is, I will add a link to it. But, for now you can view the music video of his iPhone song on YouTube. I attended a lot of other great classes and visited plenty of cool vendors at the conference too: The presenters discussed the benefits of using PSAs in the classroom.
PSAs teach life skills in a way that helps the messages really stick with the kids. They teach story-telling skills and encourage creativity. Next we discussed the major components of PSAs.
They can only be 30 seconds long, they should be effective in getting across the message, and they should be on-topic. Students are encouraged to use a variety of tools ussed by advertisers to get the attention of the audience, such as humor, music, catchy phrases, mystery, emotion, and guilt.
We divided into groups and created our own PSAs about the use of technology in education. My group's project emphasized how technology can be a motivator and can help students interact and get excited about learning. I was the camera operator, Rossi was an anti-technology teacher, and John was a bored student.
We even got Joanna to join in as a member of the class. I enjoyed the class, and I agree that PSAs can be useful, fun projects to use in the classroom. I already knew a lot about using the digital cameras and video editing software.His research and writing have also appeared in the Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, BusinessWeek, Fortune, Forbes, and the Weekly Standard.
