Today was my first day at the 2014 ISTE Conference. If you have never attended ISTE, it’s often awe-inspiring as well as overwhelming. It’s an exciting and exhilarating time for educators – especially those of us passionate about the role of technology in education. I spent much of the day catching up with my peers that I only see on the conference circuit, including my old classmate Moss Pike, Ph.D. from the Harvard Westlake School, my friend and mentor Larry Kahn (soon to be Tech Director of the Iolani School), and Vinnie Vrotney (the new Tech Director of the Kinkaid School and new chair of the ISTE Independent School Educator Network).
There is so much that I am looking forward to this week – seeing what Google has up its sleeve (especially Classroom), learning what other schools are doing, the Maker Playground on Tuesday 9:00 – 1:00pm! It’s going to be an exciting conference!
