Remy RobitailleWhat happened when almost 2000 like-minded, innovative educators came together for a week-long meeting of the minds? Breakthrough professional development moments, shared best practices across an international audience and re-focusing on how to best serve and educate students.And thanks to social media, it didn’t happen in a vacuum.Due to the dedication of NTAC 2016 attendees, we were able to communicate the impact of personalized PBL learning not only to attendees, but also to the larger worldwide audience dedicated to providing authentic, deeper learning to all students.We were able to follow the cross-country journey of a New Tech educator headed to NTAC on his scooter, a PBL teacher in Australia watched our keynote address live on Periscope (shout out to Melanie Crafton for live-streaming!), New Tech Network educators who couldn’t attend due to illness or family emergencies were able to enjoy the key learnings and moments from each day and people worldwide who are new to PBL were able to experience the passion of New Tech Network.Thank you to everyone who contributed to the #NTAC16 stream. From amazing selfies, breakthrough moments and sharing connections with new schools in the network, you documented an impactful week and left us motivated for the upcoming year.I also want to give a special shout out to this year’s social team:Drea Bocook, Clive Learning AcademyJosh Byard, Trumann Intermediate SchoolMalorie Crafton, Calumet New Tech High SchoolMark Darket, Belleville New TechKirsten Fitzgerald, Calumet New Tech High SchoolEmily Lewis, Crestview School of InquiryAdam Nidey, Crestview School of InquiryVernadette Rino, Cedar GroveBrooke Von Stein, Crestview School of InquiryThanks for volunteering your time!Interested in joining the social team next year?
