In pictures: Mrs. Blossom’s TCEA 2010 show round up

Last week was a busy week! I was in Austin, Texas, meeting lots of teachers and making new friends at TCEA 2010 – that’s the Texas Computer Education Association’s annual trade show. It’s one of the biggest educational technology events of the year, and I was there with some of my friends at Blossom Learning to tell people about my new online professional development course for teachers: the first online applied SMART Board training course.

I’ve posted some pictures below of my week at TCEA 2010. Thanks to everyone who came to my booth and watched my presentation, which gave people a sneak peek of the new online SMART Board professional development course for teachers.

Arriving at TCEA 2010

I arrived bright and early at TCEA 2010. Time to find out where exhibitor registration is! Found it! The friendly folk at TCEA helped me to register for my exhibitor badge.

People learning about my new online SMART Board course

My booth was full all day, right from the start of show, with hundreds of teachers sitting down to watch the preview of my new online SMART Board training course. You can see some videos of the course at http://www.youtube.com/mrsdblossom, and of course at http://www.blossomlearning.com.

Time for a break in the exhibitor lounge!

Tired out at the end of the day

Wow, it’s the end of the day and I am tired! I met so many great teachers today and I am looking forward to teaching them how to use the SMART Board in their classroom to its full potential. Thanks so much to everyone who came to see us at TCEA 2010. If you didn’t manage to come to the show, you can see all the photos on our Flickr page. Go to http://www.blossomlearning.com/community.
