Ah, the ISTE conference planner, the can’t-live-without tool of the conference. An online method of organizing the sessions you want to attend, your planner can also be shared with friends and colleagues so you can coordinate your plan of “attack.”
If you haven’t filled out your planner yet, you definitely should. I’m sure there’s other tools that can be used to organize your schedule, but the planner is probably the easiest.
Every time I look at the conference program, I find something new I’m interested in. With just one click, I add it to my planner. No matter that I have 3 and 4 sessions per time slot–it’s always good to have choices and back-ups.
I’ve already shared with you the schedule of events I’m participating in. But today I wanted to take a look inside my planner, and share with you some of the sessions I’ve labeled “can’t miss” (all times Pacific):
Looks like a great session from Matthew Williams of KQED.
2011 Keynote presenter Christopher Lehmann leads this session, which focuses on a key 21st Century learning skill.
I don’t know how I’m going to be in 3 places at once. I’ll give it a shot, though. I haven’t had much luck with Birds of a Feathers at my last two ISTEs. These three promise to be top notch, however.
This is a poster session, and it looks really intriguing. Not sure if I’ll be able to make it to the other poster sessions taking place on other days, but I’ll definitely be checking this one out and cruising the other sessions Wednesday, for sure.
Yet another session focused on important 21st Century skills. It’s a BYOD event, and it’s sold out, but I did pre-register. This will be the first BYOD session I think I’ll get to attend. It looks like a winner.
I’m eager to learn about any route to literacy I can. Wednesday is looking like a really good day.
