Summer is a time for having fun, and that is certainly what Mrs. Yollis has been doing!
Summer, like anytime, is also a time for learning!
At the end of July, Mrs. Yollis was an online learner at the Reform Symposium e-Conference!
This FREE online conferences had 80 presenters and 12 keynote speakers! Mrs. Yollis was thrilled to be able to learn from incredible teachers located all over the world, and she did it all
on her laptop computer in her home!
Each online classroom was an elluminate room and looked very similar to this:

Mrs. Yollis attended many session and learned about new innovations and tools that she can use in her own classroom. Because it was an international conference, some of the sessions were scheduled in the middle of the night, Los Angeles time! In addition, there were so many interesting speakers, Mrs. Yollis had to make some tough choices about which sessions to attend. Luckily, the half hour presentations were recorded and are available for learning to anyone!
Here is a link to all the sessions!
Not only is it important to learn from other people, it is also important to help others. Mrs. Yollis volunteered to be a moderator for her good friend and quad blogging buddy, Mrs. Morris!
Mrs. Morris lives in Australia and has a fantastic class blog called 2KM and 2KJ. In addition, she also has a professional blog called Integrating Technology in the Primary Classroom where she shares information for educators.
Mrs. Morris' presentation was called Connecting With Global Blogging Buddies.
Here is a link to her presenation.
Besides being in the classroom, where are some places that you learn?
