Hi From Williamsburg!

No long post or crazy ramblings from me today. Just a quick video feed from our jam-packed session at VASCD18, where we managed to squeeze like 80 or so teachers into a room for a game-changing look at ways to go Beyond Kahoot: Fully Gamified Instruction for any Content or Grade Level.

Today’s presentation is linked in the preceding paragraph, and resources are posted to the conference app if you’re on the hunt for templates and the like. Thanks to all who came to today’s presentation and joined in the fun! Can’t wait to hear more from you folks and continue this amazing work in the days, weeks, and months to come. Hit me up on Twitter at @MeehanEDU to share stories of your successes!

Absolute blast of a day in Williamsburg. Now for a nice, quiet dinner. And sleep. Very much sleep.
