Last week, the Illinois Computing Educators held their annual "ICE Conference" in St. Charles, IL (http://iceberg.org/ice_conference). Attending an education conference is great for increasing knowledge, building skills and most importantly, having an opportunity to meet and discuss teaching and learning with fellow educators. However, if you were unable to attend, consider using the ICE online resources to "build your own PD experience!"
1) Tune into the new ICE Eduvision channel, https://ice.eduvision.tv/, to watch great keynote addresses by Wes Fryer and Pam Allyn, as well as several breakout sessions hosted by these keynoters and other featured speakers, such as: Scott McLeod, Steve Dembo, Hall Davidson, Ben Rimes, Carol Broos and Joe Brennan.
2) Watch several sessions on the ICE Conference UStream channel: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/2009-ice-conference (look for videos recorded last week).
3) Visit the ICE Wiki for links to presenter info, breakout session slides, handouts and resources from Thursday:
4) Finally, search through Twitter using the hashtag #ice13 (https://twitter.com/search?q=%23ice13&src=typd) to check out the "Tweets" posted during the conference (also archived at http://www.tweetarchivist.com/37df1d10/1)
