First of all, I apologize for my prolonged absence. I have had a number of projects that I’ve been juggling in the background; one of which included the acquisition of a new home. Therefore, my time has been filled with trips to Home Depot, finishing out the school year, and packing up boxes. I’ve also been working on some exciting projects with EdTechTeacher, Miami Device, and of course my home institution, Ransom Everglades. I cannot wait to share these with you.
On Sunday, I head out to Philadelphia to attend the 2015 ISTE conference. ISTE, while overwhelming, is an amazing place to network with like minded educators, administrators, and educational professionals. This year, I am honored to taking on a new role with the Independent School Educator’s Network, serving as Chair-Elect for 2015-2016. This community has been such an asset to me for my professional growth.
I’m also excited to attend various sessions on Professional Development, Digital Portfolios, Flipped Learning, and more. I always come back from ISTE feeling energized and excited about the future of technology in our schools.
If you are interested in attending ISTE 2015 in Philadelphia, then be sure to sign up for a late registration here. If you don’t have the money or the time to attend physically, they offer a virtual ticket as well. You can register for ISTE Live. If you are at this years conference, be sure to say hello! I will try to blog my reflections on the conference here; but I often get lost in events and social activities. I will also be tweeting @TeacherJenCarey.
