Adobe MAX 2010 Wrap-Up Part 1: Pre-Conference

So… it’s taken me a while to get these thoughts together and I’m not going to write about the general sessions, announcements, Sneaks, MAX Bash and all – you can read that elsewhere. What I’ll be providing here is an overview of events from my perspective, day-by-day, with a short overall wrap-up at the conclusion. Many photographs. Sound good? Excellent. Saturday: I arrived Saturday evening and took a taxi straight to the University of Southern California, where Adobe Education was holding a summit reception at the School of Cinematic Arts. Had the taxi drop me off on the campus outskirts

Mobile Outlook 2010 – Where Are We?

Roundtable presentation at the Teaching with Technology Conference, Boulder, CO. August 11, 2010 – 11:10 a.m. We are currently experiencing what will probably be the largest technological shift since the introduction of the internet onto our campuses for widespread use. Powerful mobile devices are expected to increase at a tremendous rate at universities and elsewhere in the world over the next few years to the point that many activities now done via a desktop machine will be enabled on hand-held devices.

Adobe Education Leader Institute 2010

Since having the opportunity to begin work as an AEL in late 2008, I always look forward to this event. While completely exhausting by week’s end; there is really no other experience that comes close to this! Monday evening marked a great reception at the Fairmount. Great to catch up with other AELs that were present last year, new AELs or those I hadn’t met previously,
