I discovered this morning during our keynote speaker that I can't just sit and listen to a speaker anymore I need to multitask. There was a backlog chat that was being projected on the walls in the auditorium where we sat. Unfortunately, I'd left my tablet in my classroom and couldn't participate. It was killing me!

So now I'm being a bad listener while in my small session... typing away, trying to catch up with my thoughts. Bad me.

Please, let it go. You are no bad person.

its more a sign of intelligence than a sign of bad character.

Its been a long time since I have been able to sit and listen to a speaker.

Thanks Russel :) I just felt bad that I wasn't totally concentrating on the speaker... but even he said that he was ok with the backlog and people chatting. As I teacher, I know that I'm ok with the kids chatting a bit as long as it's on task.
