My ISTE 2010 experience

Filed under: Uncategorized — Learning with Lucie @ 11:12 am

It was great to see so many Vermonters in Denver at the Iste 2010 conference

I can't even begin to highlight everything I gleaned from this year's conference.
There were over 2000 url's bookmarked with the tag iste10 though delicious.com

I personally loved listening to the conversation on twitter using #iste10 to see what the buzz was about

This was a great  way to get 'short' snippets of the best of Iste 2010.

If you could not attend any of these workshops but wanted to– check out Iste Vision for lots of video taped workshops

And in case you didn't realize it, most presenters post their handouts and these can be accessed by

For example,  if you know that Steve Dembo usually updates his presentation on policy, procedures, etc each year, you could search for Dembo
and find his latest materials which included

I had one of the best NECC/ISTE conferences ever this year as my soul and spirit were filled with presentations on the topic of Creativity and Innovation ranging from Ian Jukes, Gary Stager, Mitch Resnick (one of the creators of Scratch)  and the Teacher Game Institute (Pedagogy, Play, Pixels, Programming and Project Based Learning)
If you have not seen Ian Jukes before, I totally recommend exploring his work

On Wednesday, I got a chance to attend the all-day   nline Learning Institute, where I met lots of people in the trenches of

I did manage to hit the vendor floor for a brief time where I saw some pretty cool ultra short throw projectors for under $1000 including one from BENQ that included a stylus that turned it into a interactive white board  (or at least a pointer/mouse).

But all in all, my favorite part was networking and continuing to develop my Personal Learning Network.  Met Bron from Quest Atlantis face to face, who introduced me to other Quest Atlantis; had a wonderful time with Jackie Gerstein, Helen and Erin Barrett; enjoyed chatting with Adam Frey at the Wikispaces party and all my fellow Google Certified Educator at the Google Block Party; met some more Edu-collaborators at Alex's get-to-gether, and collected lots of business cards and ideas from fantastic passionate fellow educators.  More learning than I imagined possible.
