I'm excited this week about the CUE Conference coming up in Palm Springs. I've been working with Computer Using Educators since fall, helping with member and corporate relations. It's a California-wide professional membership org for K-20 educators...educators that are gung-ho for technology. At the annual conference, topics range from video editing to podcasting to free classroom resources. A ton of planning and work goes into it, and back at CUE headquarters (hidden within WestEd's Oakland offices) Marisol and Danielle are moving so quickly at the office that they may burst into flames any time now.
Lots of new exhibitors this year, and warm welcomes to many who are returning. I can't wait to meet them all, after months of phone and email conversations. It has been refreshing to interact with so many businesspeople who 'get' CUE.
Even more exciting, member registrations have flooded in and we're expecting more registrations on-site. Check out where people are coming from on this nifty map. I've been smitten with the whole CUE org for months now and I'm excited to learn more about what members want, because they're doing great work and I want to help!
