It has been too long (3 years) since I’ve been able to attend ISTE. Part of it has been a 4,000 mile move from Arizona to Alaska, part the need to focus on building new “local” connections, and part of it was a frustration that the conversation hadn’t changed much in a decade of being an “Ed Tech Advocate”. This February that started to change when I was given the opportunity to lead our Ed Tech group.
Working with my Ed Tech staff rekindled an excitement and passion for teaching and learning that has been present, but not at the forefront of my daily work.
I’m excited to spend the next few days with my tribe of passionate educators, teachers through superintendents. I hope to have my assumptions challenged, skills improved, and connections made.
Look forward to seeing you all soon!
