Mike SmartIn early October, the Pearson Foundation brought all the 2008 National State Teachers of the Year to New York City to make two-minute videos titled “Why We Teach”. Each Teacher of the Year created a short speech and brought some photos to a Manhattan studio. We spent an afternoon making our videos with the help of members from the Mobile Learning Institute.

All the finished Teacher of the Year videos recently went on the Pearson Foundation’s website. You can see them here. Mine is on the page as well, but here’s a direct link.

The project was great fun, as was the entire stay in New York City. I’d like to publicly thank the Pearson Foundation for their generous support and hospitality while we were in New York. They gave us first class treatment the whole way: treated us to dinner and a Broadway play (Spamalot was awesome!); gave us a handy Flip video camera and other goodies; and covered all the costs associated with our New York stay. Thank you!
