“Be regular and orderly in your life, so that you may be violent and original in your work.” – Gustave Flaubert

This week I am in beautiful Atlanta, Georgia, presenting at the GAETC conference. I had six sessions which you can read about here, http://teacherrebootcamp.com/tag/gaetc13. Here are the resources for the Research on the Go with Mobile Devices session. I tried collaborative note-taking with the 400 audience. We all took notes on one Google Doc. Scary, I know! However, it ended up being a great experience and many helped create notes and stories. Check out the document here, http://bit.ly/research123.
