#NAISAC14 Archive of My Conference Experience

In the last days of February 2014 (2.26.14 – 2.28.14), I attended #NAISAC14 – the National Association of Independent Schools Annual Conference 2014.

During the conference, my real-time tweets served as my note-taking and my reactions/responses to what I was learning.

Below, I’m simply archiving the sessions I attended so that 1) I have a snapshot of my conference experience in my ePortfolio, and 2) colleagues at my school and in my PLN can ask me questions about any of the sessions in which I participated.
