#4 Killington Grand has the best hot tubs!
#5 I get to bring my HOME and my husband to the conference.
1984 Wanderlodge Bus by Bluebird
Killington Grand is letting us park our mobile home/bus - Just look around for the brown/tan vintage RV – a Bluebird Wanderlodge. And Craig Lyndes, my super talented husband is helping with tech set up and tear down, so he’ll be there too
#6 VermontFest (Killington, VT) is our last stop on our way out of Vermont on our living in a bus adventure.
Craig and I gave up our apartment in June and moved into the bus for an 18 month journey (6 months in Vermont, 6 months outside Vermont, 6 months back to Vermont, with the next 6 months To Be Determined)

Want to use your iPads in more powerful ways?
Looking for a Graduate Class that can support you in this inquiry?
Then why not enroll in a Fall semester graduate course offered by Marlboro College Graduate school. Completely online!
Join fellow educators to consider the Essential Question: "How can we leverage mobile tools to transform learning?"
-Contribute to collaborative curation of resources and grow a PLN (personal learning network) that can help us better understand learning with mobile devices.
-Build skills using mobile tools by completing the weekly challenge
– Reflect on our learning
-Complete a Final Project that uses mobile tools to transform learning in YOUR learning environment.
Tablets, smartphones, readers and other mobile devices are rapidly becoming part of the learning landscape. This course will explore and evaluate features and resources to leverage when integrating mobile devices in instructional design and curriculum. Course topics will include apps, multimedia, and multimodal resources such as ibooks, ebooks, iTunes U and Open University. There will be a heavy focus on moving beyond consumption into creation and collaboration with mobile devices, using text, audio, images, and video. Personalized learning, accessibility, and other pedagogical considerations will be explored as we pursue a creative inquiry into what type of transformation is possible with mobile devices.More information is available on the Class Syllabus.
