By the numbers:
1 panel participation
2 flights to arrive
3 Canadian treats: Cheezies, Smarties, and Coffee Crisps
4 days of learning
5 days in Anaheim
6 days of walking to and fro
7 bags for the #CuriosityCrew
8 days of charging/recharging technology
9 slicers + sharing writerly gifts (Thanks, Kim, for the socks and the bracelet!)
10 or more pictures with Dr. Mary Howard
All added up to a fabulous learning week in California.
It was so great to publish posts 999 and 1000 while at #NCTE22.
And the friends, known and new,
To see them face-to-face,
With and without masks,
To celebrate learning, laughter, joy and genius.
“On to OHIO – NCTE23!”
For the survey:
1) The app needs to be available before Wednesday when the conference begins on Thursday.
2) 39 sessions at a time is too many to sift through.
3) There needs to be a short morning and afternoon break slot for attendees to visit with each other. Walking more than three miles a day with zero lunch / restroom breaks is hard. 15 minutes between every session is hard when it’s a sprint from the nether northlands to the southernmost rooms – twice!
