Having Fun in Philly - ISTE Conference 2011

I just got to Philadelphia, PA to attend the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Conference.  About 12,000 educators and technologists will join together for four days to learn, network, listen, watch, try, and see the latest ways to integrate and use technology in Education. 

ISTE has held conferences since 1979.  The conference has grown as fast as technology has and last year's conference in Denver included 356 concurrent sessions and 604 additional presentations, all in 4 days!  Choices!  Choices!  This year there are even more sessions and amazing speakers.  If you ever have the chance to attend this conference, do!  I highly recommend it as an amazing learning opportunity.

The theme this year is "Unlocking Potential."  I am looking forward to my time at ISTE 2011 and  I promise to blog about new ideas, tools and tips so I can help you unlock your potential to use technology to enhance your lessons and for your own productivity. 

I the mean time, I am including links to the ISTE National Educational Technology Standards for teachers, administrators and students.

I will be tweeting during the conference.  You can follow me on Twitter at: @sheilatebbano

Check out the NETs and see how much you are already doing to support these standards.  They offer a solid foundation for technology use and integration efforts.  Stay tuned for more "keeping it simple" posts after the conference!
