Midwest Google Summit

Today and tomorrow, the Midwest Google Summit is taking place in the Wisconsin Dells.  This has always been one of my favorite conferences because I learn so much!

Today, one of the YouTube videos that was shared through our keynote caught my attention.  At this time of the year, tests like WKCE, MAPS, PALS, AimsWeb, etc. seem to suck out so much time from our day.   This video was a great reminder of how important it is to incorporate lessons with higher level thinking skills.  How often are we really giving our students an opportunity to be creative and innovative?  Take a peek  at the video and let me know what you think —

P.S. If you are a teacher that would like to live vicariously through those that are attending the Summit, please follow #mwgs on Twitter or check out the session resources.
