ISTE Day Two

Whew! I am worn out after a busy day at ISTE. My friend and SDE colleague, Ricky Mikelman, joined me to take in the sessions and exhibits. I needed her to keep me on track in the gigantic exhibit hall. I kept weaving everywhere. She finally led me through the rows and rows of things to look at in a very systematic way. Gotta love those math people!

Check out the picture of some of the swag I got during my visit. I think I have 4 tshirts, ear buds, super cute usb drive, and a blinged out lanyard. My fave freebie, which we stood in line forever to do, but worth the wait… was a cloth bag embellished with an iron on transfer made by Silhouette electronic cutting tool. I am so going to buy one of these neat machines. I hope my daughter Ashlyn likes her new bag.

Google, Glogster, and Brain Pop were just a few of the fun booths with picture opportunities. I met Moby! Also chatted with the Edmodo, Comic Life, and PBS Learning folks. Loved the presentation by Elmo document cameras and their tshirt. The adorable presenter for Elmo led us through a quick look at Japanese culture by using the Elmo technology. We made origami projects and had a lovely time with the friendly ladies there.

I was totally shocked and tickled by the turn out for my session. I ended up having a full session with folks watching from the hallway. They even put up a Session Closed sign! Wahoo! The room seated around 200 so I was so honored so many new friends spent time with me. If you were there.. THANK YOU! I hope you had a great time and found the information helpful. You made my day.

Tomorrow is my last day, so I will try and take in all I can to end my delightful ISTE experience.

#personlizedlearning starts with voice and choice. A PBL is a great start. To get started, consider @drlorielliott book #pblanywhere that lays out how to go from standards to a PBL.

Excited to share my new PBL online course with you! Thanks @dbc_inc for this opportunity!

Our community unit came to life! We brainstormed wants & needs, planned, & created a community we would like to live in. This year we decided to take our plans to City Hall to share with the people in charge! @isd544otters @teacher2teacher @drlorielliott @DitchThatTxtbk

A short and sweet sesh on #PBL by @drlorielliott hosted by @dbc_inc with @burgessdave and @TaraMartinEDU It's validating to hear that so many others are taking #PBL and #inquiry and running with it!

“It's not our job to toughen our children up to face a cruel and heartless world. It's our job to raise children who will make the world a little less cruel and heartless.”
