I was in the company of some genuinely outstanding thinkers/presenters at TEDxASB. I was humbled to be in their company.

The tech staff at the American School of Bombay did a terrific job.

Very nicely done! It's great to put a face and a voice to my favorite writers.

Doug, you were fabulous! LOVE it!

Top notch, as always. I love your new take on "Give a man a fish." Engaging our students requires a whole new mindset. Unfortunately it seems to be a slow process. Teachers in my school are incorporating strategies to engage students - but we need to design courses around engagement rather than adding engagement here and there.

The line I'm taking from this is "do our lessons have a mouse?" My boss and I are getting into Bloom's Digital Taxonomy...your talk parallels those ideas.

Bravo Doug! I will be passing your video as well as the other links you have provided to my staff this next week! Truly a great opportunity for them to have some great F2F professional development when it fits THEIR schedule!

Thanks MUCH,

I saw a link to this speech on Angela Maiers' blog. I am thrilled to hear and see your Keynote speech at CEESA conference in Tallinn, Estonia.

Thanks all for the kind words. This was a more difficult task than I had imagined! And of course all I can see when I watch it are the flubs!
