I had the opportunity to attend, share, and connect at the recent ISTE (International Society of Technology Education) conference in San Antonio, Texas. The event is like none other, so to recap the experience and compare notes with peers, I've documented my full conference experience: Sessions that I shared, events I attended, and great interactions I had during the conference.
Interested in learning more? Check out the discussion captured via Facebook Live.
I also “captured” my personal thoughts about the upcoming conference via a Periscope. This can be a great activity to set personal expectations and get in the right mindset for a conference - try it sometime!
With education convention season ramping up across the country, the team at Atomic Learning has been hearing a lot of excitement and discussion around growing trends, concerns, and areas of focus in the education industry.
