If you live in downstate NY or near Long Island, I hope you’ll join me at the LEAH downstate convention March 16th, 2013. I’ll be participating as a panelist at the men’s luncheon.
The topic of the panel is: MMA (Men Mentoring Adolescents) – What Causes You to Tapout?
I’ll also be at the June convention leading a workshop. The title of the workshop is TBD but you can be sure it will relate to technology and homeschooling.
Update: Here are the topics of my two workshops in June –
Is There an App For That? Homeschooling with Technology in the 21st Century – Although the majority of home educators still use traditional means to educate their children, there is a growing group of “app-schoolers” who are embracing technology to provide a quality education for their increasingly-connected children. Whether you’re reluctant or eager to start using technology in your homeschool, you’ll benefit from learning how to incorporate apps, the Internet, and social media into your homeschool plan.
Technobabble: Talking, Tips, and Tools for Responsible Internet Use – The Internet is a great tool but it’s littered with pitfalls that can lead your children astray. Find out ways to protect your kids online, and learn how to build a constant and open dialogue with them about safe, responsible Internet use.
I’m very excited to speak at my first homeschooling convention in March and thankful to Mark DeLeon and the convention staff for inviting me to sit on the panel in March and lead a workshop (or two) in June.
Do you have any advice for a first-time convention speaker? Leave me a comment below!
