What We’re Excited About…
“This year ISTE will be virtual, once again. While I do miss enjoying the typical live ISTE conference sessions, I am looking forward to the online experience mostly because of ease of access. Virtually, you can pop into the sessions that interest you with ease. There are no lines for entry, no room capacity limits, or trying to navigate crowded conference halls to find the room of your session. I’m looking forward to attending more sessions than I would normally be able to because those physical barriers won’t exist this year. I’m also looking forward to the creativity that will be on display post-covid. This year all teachers were pushed to adopt technology in record speeds. This has led to a lot of really creative uses for technology in the classroom and I’m very excited to witness some of those examples at ISTE this year.”
