I’ve mentioned the awesome “conference within a conference” that is ISTE Live (formerly ISTE Unplugged) in a couple of previous posts. Not only is ISTE Live a great part of the ISTE conference itself, it’s also a great learning opportunity for people unable to attend. Every ISTE Live session is broadcast live online using Blackboard Collaborate.
If you’re not going to be in San Diego next week, you should definitely take part in ISTE Live. I’m presenting Tuesday, June 26 at 10:30 a.m. Pacific time. I’ll be discussing the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), ways to find and organize CCSS resources, and some tools for meeting the digital writing requirements that are embedded within the CCSS.
You definitely will want to check out the ISTE Live schedule for more great sessions. Here’s a sampling of what you’ll find:
- Twitter for Newbies
- The 5 Building Blocks for Successful Learning with Screenagers
- Building Your PLN Through Twitter Chats
- Literacy Magic With Cell Phones
- Digital Storytelling for the Multi-Ability Classroom
And more! I’m definitely looking forward to presenting and to checking out the other sessions. (And if you’re attending ISTE and you haven’t signed up to present…be brave, it’s easy and fun! Just follow the directions on the ISTE Live wiki.
