Man, if you've never been, you're missing out! You can still review the phenomenal resources compiled by the presenters at the schedule calendar site: http://2011.cue.org, and you can watch some sessions in whole at http://www.cue.org/conference/extend/2010.

I own an iPod Touch: it's the best...as long as there's wi-fi! Reading a document online and I'm given the option to print...so I try it, just to see what happens. And I'm introduced to Google Cloud Print, which lets you share a printer then you can print from any device. And Google's world domination continues. If I'm able to print from this iTouch, I may never buy a desktop again. A laptop because I can't develop curriculum on my 8" netbook's screen, but never a desktop! As it is I do most of my browsing/blogging/reading on the iTouch.

I am taking a credential class, Instructional Strategies for the Adult and Adolescent Learner, and have the great honor of being a student of the NASA - Endeavor Science Teaching Certificate Project, so I will be a busy bee! Though each class has just met for the first time in the last 48 hours, I already have useful resources:
Benchmarks & Standards
Benchmarks & Standards
- entire book! Science for All Americans: the ideal science knowledge people will have long after graduation
- entire book! National Science Education Standards: adopted in the 1980's and useful to compare to your state guidelines
