    This message has been cross posted to the following Discussions: NAIS Idea Exchange and NAIS Annual Conference .

    The Daily Find (TDF) is a feature of the NAISAC Online Community. Content comes from features, events and themes related to this year's conference in Boston and from the community of independent school bloggers and NAISAC 2015 Twitter Community.

    The conference has come to an end but the conversations are just getting started. There was so much that was shared at this year's conference. Everywhere you turned, there was something to learn. Opportunities to learn included the keynote and featured speakers, three- hour and one- hour workshops, NAIS MakerSpace, Online Gallery of Independent School MakerSpaces, exhibit hall floor, Twitter #NAISAC, and for all of us, the many hallway and restaurant conversations we had with other independent school educators representing all elements of independent school education. The challenge now for each of us is to see what this all means for us as individuals, as educators and what we will do to take our schools to the next level in this dynamic time of change in education.

    As you continue to reflect on the past week, you are encouraged to share with the greater community your experiences at this year's NAIS conference, your "Ah Ha!" moments, the big "take aways" resources shared and anything else you feel would be of interest to the greater community. If you maintain a personal blog, please send the link of any NAIS reflections to [email protected] and also Tweet it out with the tag #naisac and mention of @naisac15. That will help me get these distributed to the greater community. If you do not have a blog, fear not as there is a way for you to participate as well. Simply write your reflection in any word processor then send the text to [email protected] and I will make sure it gets posted on the community site with attribution. Please include your name and your school.
