Inspired By Visual Notetaking & New Friends At The PBLNY Conference Today!
I worked with educators in two workshops today and had a wonderful time learning and teaching, while meeting lots of new friends and colleagues.
Leland Melvin kicked off the conference with the opening keynote.
It was such an inspiration to hear Leland's story of being a professional athlete, astronaut, scientist, engineer, photographer, and musician. It is definitely one of perseverance and passion.
Rachel Brian, crafted amazing visual notes on a giant piece of paper. It was really powerful seeing Leland's keynote through the eyes of Rachel.
After lunch I went into the ballroom I was presenting in and there was Rachel again.
I was very excited to see what she would create during the two hours I would be presenting and working with our group.
It was the best! I loved seeing my thoughts, ideas and words on this masterpiece she had created.
Through collaboration, creativity and insight, she was able to create something beautiful. Rachel's work has so many things to teach us. I can't wait to learn and try it out too.
Thank you Rachel and Leland for the inspiration. You two are making a difference in the world.
