I'm excited to attend the conference. I'm always excited to attend ISTE. The chance to be among other educators who are enthusiastic about teaching and technology makes me smile. I also look forward to reconnecting with people I met last year. By chatting and catching up with members of my virtual tribe, we have a chance to share and engage with others. This year, I will have the chance to learn about new resources and share some of my own teaching experiences with others. This leads to why I am nervous..
I will present a session this year. My session is titled, How LMSs can Increase Engagement with PBLs. Proposed as a poster session, I was ecstatic when I received a request to do a snapshot. Once the excitement wore off (it really never did) I became nervous. How would I fit the three PBL experiences in thirty minutes? Would people attend? Would others be excited about this topic?
I welcome the chance to find out. If you are interested in learning a bit more about PBLs, or would like to gain some ideas for ways to engage the students in your library program, come and check-out the session. It will be on Wednesday, June 28, 2017. Located in 225AB, the session will begin at 8:30 am. Check out the ISTE app to sign-up.
I also have the opportunity to share the revamped style of PD in my school. In a session titled, Inside Out PD, my colleagues and I will discuss the premise for the teacher centered PDs at our school. This session will be on Wednesday, June 28, 2017 and begins at 1:00 pm. The session will be Ballroom 4.
For those who are unable to attend, I have a few hashtags that may be helpful:
