Going to ISTE and interested in PBL? Please join my session on Wed. (6/29), 11:45 a.m., on "Ripped from the Headlines Projects." Get some ideas from colleagues and a special guest about using the news as jumping-off point for inquiry-driven projects. See you there!

@Lisa- I noticed you said "dissertation". If I may ask- where is your PhD/EdD program and what for?

It's getting closer and my excitement level is going up.  There are so many great sessions that I have already put into my planner.  If I get to even half that will be great.  I'm really hoping that all the TPACK sessions will help with my dissertation.

I've been enjoying the process of identifying what sessions I want to go to using the ISTE 2011 planner. So many choices!

I am so excited to be attending this year for the 1st time. Still deciding on sessions to go to. Kinda hard to choose. Also looking forward to meeting some of my PLN in person. :)

I am looking forward to ISTE 2011. I have attended the conference for the past couple of years and have thoroughly enjoyed it.

Proud to be a newbie this year and can't wait to meet my PLN! It has been a transformative year of learning and teaching for me. Eager to continue learning with you all! Any tips a newbie should know before arriving in Philly?

I'm technically not a newbie ( I worked the exhibit hall for Edutopia 2 years ago in DC) but this year will be the first year I'll be attending as press and going to the workshops. Very exciting! Anyone going to the Drupal or QR codes workshop? I was debating between the two since they are in the same time slot.
