This is my first ISTE, and I am also attending alone, which makes me kinda nervous! I've joined the ISTE Ning and started twittering, but I'm always interested in expanding my PLN even more.

If you see an old guy walking around the convention center in a Hawaiian shirt and a confused look on his face, step up and say hello to me. I will have an additional name-tag you may recognize.

I am also an ISTE Newbie. As a Glogster Ambassador, Glogster Edu paid my conference registration. I am looking forward to learning and working with Glogster staff. I am attending alone, so I would love to meet others and learn from my PLN too.

I'm looking forward to meeting members of my PLN and adding more.  Are there any meet-ups planned?

@Elana- How amazing that you work for Edutopia. Many thanks to all the inspiration and spot lights Edutopia gives to education.


I plan on heading to the Edutopia event after I take down some pins at Lucky Strike at the YEN meet up. What is the best place to get my 'phase 2' for the event and do I need a print out of my registration?

It's hard to know what I want to take away from ISTE 2011. But I'm hoping to run into a new idea or way of thinking about technology.

@Suzie - Nice! We'll make sure to have one Edutopia staff member attending. Sounds exciting!


PS: I forgot to mention to this group that there's a fun Karaoke event happening on Tuesday (6/28). It'll be a very fun event and not only is it open to everyone and free to attend (Note: You must register to attend), the first 100 people to attend get a free drink and goodies: Disclosure: I work for Edutopia and Edutopia is a sponsor of this event. Hope to see some of you there!

Do you have a spending problem?

Shopaholics do not agree to the fact that they are shopaholics until and unless they are forced to agree that they are affected by the addiction of shopping, and they need to do seriously something about it so that they do not waste their entire savings and cry about it on a later date. In this post, we will help you spot the problem and if you spot the issue, go ahead and look for a remedy so that you get enough time to be at ease in the future. 1.    Your credit card balance is always close…See More

"I am the greatest"

I was 6 when I decided I wanted to be a PE teacher. A lively child, I loved taking part in any kind of sporting activity. It was 1971 when I set eyes on our new track suited next-door neighbour. I was hooked. I wanted to be like her. I wanted to go to work in a tracksuit and trainers and play sport all day. No amount of persuasion or…See More
