‘Twas the week before Blackboard World,
not much longer will we wait.
Thinking about multi-booked sessions
for which we’ll be late.
Meeting with vendors, colleagues and more,
Technology experts and topics to explore.
Pre-conference workshops to jumpstart our brains
learning best practices on which we will train.
I’m interested in training, f2f and online,
so many sessions, so little time!
T-Bug, best practice, pedagogy first,
networking with colleagues, you work up a thirst!
Vendor exhibits, giveaways galore,
Or maybe a door prize of which we will score!
We will listen, we will talk, we will soak up the knowledge,
and share our experiences with private sector, k-12, or college.
We look to return come Friday next week,
loaded with the knowledge we strove to seek.
So I say to you all, let’s learn without fear,
for if we want more, we wait ‘till next year!
