And if your'e gonna be ROCKIN   and JAMMING  we might as well get PHYSICAL...on Friday morning

Friday morning's session is a chance for anyone  of YOU who does ANY type of coding with physical objects  ( Sphero! Ozobot! KEBO! Dash and Dot! LittleBits! Makey Makey, Parrot Drone,  PicoBoard! Raspberry Pi!  .. Arduino..  to demo what you got  or let your peers get their hands on some fun ways to make with CODE.
We're even thinking of having a TICKLE RODEO  (with prizes)   
So why not download TICKLE  and bring  one of these devices  and show off what you can and do when you combine code with a physical object.

This will be a collaborative conversation where we get PHYSICAL with CODE!  

Please reach out to me off  or on list ([log in to unmask])  if you would be willing to bring an object for the  anticipated Tickle Rodeo! 

With all this Rocking and Jamming and Getting Physical with Code.. VermontFest is going to be a super Good Time!

Fellow Listers:


Could you do us a favor... could you please send the following to at least one person in your school/district that you think may be a good candidate to attend Vermont Fest.



Vermont Fest Technology Conference is a great venue to explore new ideas for implementing technology in your classroom…  and you are sure to pick up teaching techniques that make integration easier or more manageable.  In addition, you will network with great Vermont K-12 educators who are willing to share their successes and challenges.  


It is a fun filled conference with lots of options for various learning styles.  Do you like to watch and listen… we have that.  Do you like to get involved in energizing (sometimes passionate) educational conversations… got that too.  How about hands-on learning… we have lots of opportunities for that.  How about just getting together with like-minded educators to informally discuss a topic of interest… yep, you will also have those opportunities.  Heck, you can even go to a session in the famous outdoor heated swimming pool… really!!


Our vendors will display the latest in technology innovation and offer services that you may not yet be aware of… and they give out some great gifts and prizes.


You owe it to your self to check out the Program.  Please take a minute and visit the VT Fest site… 


or… go directly to the program…


Here are just a few sample sessions…
