Justin Birckbichlerat GAFE Summit IV.
Thanks for having fun with us, Ari!
I attended my first GAFE Summit in LA County in March 2016, and had my mind blown. It wasn't the apps, it's wasn't the willingness of all to learn, and it wasn't even the stellar presenters and speakers--it was the people! This was the first conference where I felt confident in my abilities as an EdTech leader (yes, I now see myself as a leader!) and in the connections I made with other people.

- "Think Open" is a concept brought up by the one and only Dee Lanier. He definitely challenged us to think about the accessibility of what we are doing, and if it can be achieved on any platform. It has made me reconsider the emphasis I put on specific apps, and shift to the technology skills I want my students to have, no matter the device.

- Fluffy is a powerful friend. I had people who wanted pictures with Fluffy (a picture with me was obviously secondary in that request), and others who knew me as "oh you're the one with the unicorn!" Thanks Fluffy!
It was an amazing weekend in El Centro. Can't wait for the next one!
