I'm another ISTE newbie. I teach philosophy at an American-style international school in Bangkok, Thailand, but I will be back in the states for the summer. Have planned most of the summer schedule…Continue

This is my first ISTE, and I am also attending alone, which makes me kinda nervous! I've joined the ISTE Ning and started twittering, but I'm always interested in expanding my PLN even more.

If you see an old guy walking around the convention center in a Hawaiian shirt and a confused look on his face, step up and say hello to me. I will have an additional name-tag you may recognize.

I am also an ISTE Newbie. As a Glogster Ambassador, Glogster Edu paid my conference registration. I am looking forward to learning and working with Glogster staff. I am attending alone, so I would love to meet others and learn from my PLN too.

I'm looking forward to meeting members of my PLN and adding more.  Are there any meet-ups planned?

@Elana- How amazing that you work for Edutopia. Many thanks to all the inspiration and spot lights Edutopia gives to education.

 

I plan on heading to the Edutopia event after I take down some pins at Lucky Strike at the YEN meet up. What is the best place to get my 'phase 2' for the event and do I need a print out of my registration?

It's hard to know what I want to take away from ISTE 2011. But I'm hoping to run into a new idea or way of thinking about technology.

@Suzie - Nice! We'll make sure to have one Edutopia staff member attending. Sounds exciting!

 

PS: I forgot to mention to this group that there's a fun Karaoke event happening on Tuesday (6/28). It'll be a very fun event and not only is it open to everyone and free to attend (Note: You must register to attend), the first 100 people to attend get a free drink and goodies: http://edtechkaraoke-iste2011.eventbrite.com/. Disclosure: I work for Edutopia and Edutopia is a sponsor of this event. Hope to see some of you there!

Innovation in Education is Overrated

As a society, we place a premium on innovators and entrepreneurs. They are admired, or for some revered in Business, Politics, and even Education. The reason for that bias is that innovators and entrepreneurs are scarce commodities. Most people are employees and not entrepreneurs. There is nothing wrong with that. Most people follow trends; they don’t start them. There is nothing wrong with that. Few people lead while most people follow. Again, there is nothing wrong with that. On the surface…See More
