Update from TSI

I'm in the midst of working with the Teachers Summer Institute here at Moore College of Art and Design. We've gathered to explore the "Transformative Power of Art". Our guests include educators from Philadelphia as well as Colombia, South America. Our time with Matty Hart and Ted Enoch of Spiral Q was phenomenal, truly inspiring stuff! Today we also had the great pleasure of spending time in historic Eastern State Penitentiary. (Which by the way was just being used to film part of Transformers 2.) The cite specific works there at Eastern State are really captivating installations. I'm reawakened by the refreshing variety of media, concept, format, and tone.

So, how does this relate to Intro to Information Tech? Well, a few things come to mind. When listening to Matty Hart make his key note speech I could rejoice within knowing how he embedded the videos in his power point. In addition, I was able to recommend to some art teachers in great need of centralized bookmarking tools available online. Ok, so they may not mean much but they are proof I'm learning and assimilating something. :)
