I learned so much about technology and met some amazing people! I loved hearing where everyone was from and how they made it to ISTE. I especially liked seeing and meeting people from big technology companies like Brainpop at ISTE.
What advice would you have for students who have never been to ISTE, or who are nervous about going to ISTE?
First, there is nothing to worry about. You made ISTE, you must be doing something right! Everyone is there for the same reason and most people are willing to learn with you.
What are the top 5 items you MUST take with you to #ISTE14?
1- Phone- If you are anything like me you are going to take LOTS of pictures.
2- Bag- You will get lots of cool stuff at ISTE and most tables have pens, candy, business cards, etc.
3- Charger- You will also want to take a charger to charge your phone at any time you are not using it.
4- Business cards- You need a way to be remembered.
5- A willing attitude to teach and be taught.
What advice would you give for new TEACHERS who are going to #ISTE14 for the first time?
Teachers are used to teaching, that is their job, but while you're at ISTE make sure to learn as well. Also, take the new stuff you learned about technology and put to use in your classroom, for you and your kids.
Any other advice that you want to offer attendees this year?
Make sure to have fun and do all the hands-on activities, there’s lots of it!!
