This week I am at the #ISTE10 conference in Denver! The conference goes from June 27 to June 30. ISTE stands for the International Society of Technology in Education, the goal of the conference is to share proven ways that technology can improve and enhance education and learning. People from all over the world have come to Denver to learn together. It is truly an amazing sight to have so many passionate educators in one place!
Today I got the chance to meet my PLN in person, what a wonderfully bizarre experience. We interact on Twitter all day every day and it feels like we are already old friends. But we had no idea what the other really looked like, what facial expressions they make, what their voice sounded like. To start putting all of that together was pretty cool. I got the chance to spend the day with @kylepace, @amandacdykes, @thenerdyteacher, @MrsBMG, @buzzgarwood, and briefly met many other of my awesome PLN. All I can say is that I wish you all lived closer by so we could hang more often. We had a blast!
This week things are going to be a little different on iLearn Technology. My posts will be focused on what I am learning at #ISTE10 that I want to share with all of you. For those of you new to iLearn Technology, my posts are generally dedicated to quick easy ways to integrate technology into the classroom. Those posts will resume on Thursday. Until then, join me on my ISTE journey here and on Twitter. You can follow me @ktenkely or follow the #ISTE10 hash tag.
