ISTE Day 2

It was heaven, Christmas and summer vacation all rolled into one! Five football fields of Ed tech exhibits filled with cool gadgets, contests, and freebies. I saw the coolest pencil box/iPad holder from Belkin, a neat tablet called a Boogie Board that I see having tons of Special Education uses. Promethan had their new table that looked really cool and I saw my San Diego Unified Ed Tech Friends.

ISTE 2012

ISTE is in San Diego this year and just got home from being totally inspired by Sir Ken Robinson and my favorite Mayim Bialik, Amy from Big Bang Theory. The message is that we have to find our passion and student's passion to create real learning. We can have all the technology but it's the teacher that has the empathy and the ability to reach the students. At the student showcase I talked with two teachers from Indiana that told me about some really cool projects they have done. Check out this website to get some great ideas.  www.projectsbyjen.com and www.iearn.org . They have great ideas to expand your classroom beyond your four walls.
