I am convinced that life is 10% what happens and 90% how I react to it”. – Neil Pasricha, CoSN 2018 Closing Plenary Speaker
One of the most anticipated events at the CoSN Annual Conference is the “FailFest”. And 2018 is no exception. As educators, we know the unexpected happens and failure is inevitable. But, we rarely talk about it. Failfest celebrates how we learn from our mistakes and build a better initiative going forward.
Last year, for instance, attendees learned from the Printer Grim Reaper about how he took out ALL of the printers in his district. It was funny and clever, but more importantly, people walked away with the knowledge that will help them avoid that particular crash and burn. Audience members help select the winners in an interactive, fun, prop-filled contest.
New this year is AwesomeFest. With the same fun format, you can share your successes. Toot your horn and tell the world what they can learn from your use of technology for learning. Creativity and innovation are encouraged!
