Michigan's Association for Computer Users in Learning (MACUL)
Cobo Center





This is the first of what I hope will be yearly "checking out new conferences" adventures. For many years, ISTE has been THE destination, and rightly so -- it is a huge, national conference. However, this year I wanted to try something new (and cheaper).

MACUL (an ISTE affiliate), bragged it is one of the Midwest’s largest educational technology conferences with 5000+ educators from across Michigan, the region, and Canada. What I didn't realize is just how close to Canada we were....
Looking out from the Cobo Conference Center  - there's Canada!

Funny story - I didn't realize it, until I was speaking to some locals, that I was looking at Canada. They were surprised that a person from KS was at the conference...I mentioned that I thought it had a international pull...to which they said, Canada is right over there.

And that was how it was - lots…

On the Way to #macul17

This year I am checking out a new conference! So here I sit at the airport ready to adventure to Detroit for the Michigan Associate for Computer Users in Learning (MACUL). The conference brags that it is "one of the Midwest’s largest educational technology conferences with 5000+ educators from across Michigan, the region, and Canada."
I'm excited about experiencing a new conference and new state! The icing on the cake....I am traveling with a colleague! This is the first big conference to travel with a friend and not stay alone or with a stranger.

I'll be posting and tweeting from the conference the next two days (15th & 16th)! Look for the blog posts here and Tweets with #macul17.
