My Take Away from ISTE....
If you plan on going to a large conference such as ISTE go with a buddy or a small group. Going by yourself can be a little overwhelming at times, plus you have some one to share with. You should also make connections with other educators. While I was at ISTE I tried to meet up with some of the great educators I follow on Twitter. Some where quick just to say hi and others ended up being long meaningful conversations that you can't have on Twitter. Take a few hours and see the sites or just to take a break. I went to the Aquarium, a Braves game, and the Zoo. These conferences are not just to learn but also to have a little fun.
Below are some of the tools I played around with at ISTE. I have several more but I want to play around with them 1st before I share them.
