|Opening Keynote by John Chubb, President NAIS|
It exciting to meet folks in real life who I've known for some time on Twitter (hi @jonathanemartin) and make new friends (@fyasharian, @karenblumberg, @adambellow and others!). It was also remarkable to see how much interest there was in project-based learning, deeper learning, and the maker movement.
Here are a few inspirations, ideas and resources I took away from the conference!

I loved hearing about the engineering process and how it differs from the scientific process.
Invent to Learn seems like a great resource for makers and tinkerers.
Also here is the most inspiring scotch commercial ever (not kidding).
Sadly I lost a great article on educating through failure - help, can anyone point me to it?
And many many thanks to the talented and kind Hadley Ferguson for the ride to the train station. Check out her new book Unleashing Student Superpowers!
