So, one of the benefits of creating a virtual presence has been that I have all sorts of new friends that I have never met. I look forward to thoughtful exchanges on my blog and on theirs, I chime in every once in a while to the torrent of information that is twitter and I am happy that I’ll be able to meet a bunch of these folks at twittermathcamp 2014 in OK this summer. However, another opportunity to actually meet some of the army of talented math folks on the internet has reared its head. The amazing Jen Silverman (@jensilvermath on twitter and at http://www.jensilvermath.com on the web) will be traveling to my school in Kingston, PA to host a one day Geogebra workshop on Saturday, May 3. Here are some reasons you should think about attending:
- Jen does amazing work on GeoGebra, she is sort of a GeoGebra Jedi Master. See this page for evidence.
- We are hoping to have a manageable crowd of about 12 – 15 folks here. Enough to share ideas but not enough to get in the way of some direct instruction when you need it.
- I’m working on taking care of lunch for everyone – so that is a definite plus.
- Oh yeah – it’s free!!!
Jen created a lovely flier for this event. If I was smarter about managing my blog I would display it below, but you can click the link to see the document.
I hope that many – if not all – of my colleagues from our middle school and high school can join us and I am reaching out to anyone within a reasonable drive of NE PA to come and join us for a day of learning and sharing.
I’m so glad to hear you are going to be in OK this summer. I’ll get to meet you there. If only Jen was going to be there also to reinforce the geogebra ideas, but I do hear that @mathhombre will be. I too have become acquainted with some wonderful people on twitter and through blogs and am looking forward to meeting some of them in person this year and continuing to learn and collaborate on SM.
Thanks for being here and sharing your ideas.
