Michelle Cordy (@cordym) continues her series of interviews of notables presenting at the Bring IT, Together Conference next week, November 5-7, 2014 at the Scotiabank Convention Centre in Niagara Falls. This time, it was an interview with Heather Durnin and David Hann.
Now, I’ve known Heather Durnin (@hdurnin) for a number of years now. She does amazing things with her students in Huron County. David Hann was a person that I met for the first time last year at the Bring IT, Together Conference. He was showing off his 3D printer and talking about how he was using it with his students. I got the chance to take a peek at his presentation but quickly got called away. He did make me a plastic replica of the ECOO logo as a takeaway. I was completely impressed with the detail.
Both Heather and David are presenting separate sessions at this year’s conference. (Heather is also on the conference planning committee). I should have known this fact immediately but when I went into Lanyrd to get links to their presentations, I was really struck that there are 334 speakers in the database for the conference. There just might be a few more…
David’s session at the conference is called “How to make use of a Makerbot 3D Printer in Your School – Year II“. He is co-presenting with Ray Mercer and the description of their session is here.
Heather will be very active at the conference. In addition to her responsibilities on the planning committee, she’ll have a station at the Minds on Media event “Three Dimensions in Student Learning” where the learning will be very hands-on. The Minds on Media wiki went live yesterday and is available here. Later in the conference, she will co-present with Marc Westra on the same topic. If you miss her at Minds on Media, attend the session as described here. If you miss her in both those places, lace up your running shoes and join her in the Friday morning “Run/Walk/Be Active with Alana! / Course/marche/ Soyez actif avec Alana!” event.
Heather and David were interviewed and shared their thoughts about #makered.
