During the week of July 14, I was honored to attend the Apple Distinguished Educator Institute in Austin, TX. Take 300 to 400 talented educators and put them in one place … and magic happens!
Orientation was daunting for sure. It was like being a college freshman, getting to know a raft of new people, all of whom I might have viewed as being more talented than myself. Maxx Judd set the stage for us, challenging us on a number of levels and reviewing the requirements for the week. We were certainly going to be busy!
Sunday started with registration, a photo shoot with the very talented Bill Frakes and a Scavenger Hunt that served as an icebreaker. We also
received an ADE passport and a whole pile of stickers. The goal – collect as many stickers as possible.
