ISTE from Afar

While I’m excited by all of the work we’re during this summer in the Iowa City Schools, a busy schedule has kept me in Iowa City this week rather than in San Antonio, the site of the opens in a new window2017 ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) Conference.  ISTE is among my favorite conferences to attend; due to its scale – with over 15,000 attendees including teachers, administrators, IT professionals, school board members, and higher education faculty – there are multiple options during each session that are interesting and relevant.  

Since I’m not there to report back on the goings on, however, I thought I’d share with you some of the work by folks who are in San Antonio.  Jonathan Rogers, journalism teacher at City High, opens in a new windowhas created a fantastic Flipboard Mag documenting his experience in San Antonio, while opens in a new windowEdTekHub and the opens in a new windowISTE Blog allow you to follow the goings-on remotely.  I’ve also been following opens in a new windowTwitter and opens in a new windowInstagram during ISTE, making it possible to catch ideas and resources that I want to explore further.
