#ISTE2016 flew by #isteglobalpln #istelib #canthushthis

I can’t believe how much I learned or tried to take in at ISTE this year.  I will try to capture the awesome-ness that is ISTE but this is just one Library Technology Educators view.  Please find others incredible experience through other websites.

I arrived a little late for ISTE Unplugged but the afternoon sessions were great. All resources are linked on the Wiki page. The smackdown session was quick paced and many ideas.  Find all resources Here.  Then I went to “Making Change when Not in Charge” which was attended by many great educators including Barbara Bray, Lisette Casey and Lisa Parisi.  After the session Barbara, Lisette and I continued the discussion over coffee, including personalized learning which Barbara has written two books about. The sessions I missed that I have already reviewed are Proficiency Based Learning, STEM and Makerspace, and BreakoutEDU (education game based on “escape the room”)

On Monday, my favorite session was “Creating a TedTalk Culture in your Classroom”  They talked about all the levels of getting involved with Ted. By using Ted EDU, to creating Ted Talks, to creating a TedClub and hosting a Tedx.

At the poster sessions:
