TLD 2012: Primary Passion - Rescheduled!

Teacher Librarian Day

TPS-Colorado regretfully had to cancel Teacher Librarian Day 2012 on February 3; the Colorado weather simply got the better of us. Fortunately, this cancellation may bring new opportunity for anyone available on ThursdayMarch 8, 2012.

Too much planning went into this event to let it go, so we reached out to our presenters, and nearly all of them were available for the new date! Sorry to those unable to make this rescheduled date, but we hope this also brings some renewed anticipation for some. The venue has changed, we will now be in the Tivoli Turnhalle on the Auraria Campus, but we still have some very special guests attending that you won't want to miss! Register now to reserve your seat for the rescheduled TLD on March 8, 2012! Many original speakers still confirmed, including:

Colorado State Historian – Bill Convery
Author & Public Speaker – Jeff Vankooten - Jeff's Website
Special Collections Librarian at the Denver Public Library – Wendel Cox
The Primary Source Librarian – Mary Johnson - Mary's Blog
Teen Tech Guru – Dave Moyer –  Dave's Website
Director of the Council on 21st Century Learning Stevan Kalmon – Stevan's Blog

Educational Service District 112 (WA)

ESD 112 Logo

Vancouver, Washington was recently the site of a couple firsts for the TPS Western Region program. Not only was it the first workshop of 2012, but it was our first foray into the beautiful state of Washington. 

Held on January 12-13, the workshop for Educational Service District 112 focused on the concept of Imperialism. Unique to the workshop was the use of TodaysMeet as a means of harnessing backchannel communication, as well as collaborative construction of an inquiry activity, which the attendees used to focus their work and prepare them for a later deployed Lesson Study.
