Web Literacy For Educators

Full of new ideas and lots of texts from ISTE, I began with Alan November's "Web Literacy for Educators". It seemed the most appropriate place to start. I went into it thinking "What should I know before I can teach my students"..This is what I walked away with... in short, of course.

ISTE- Unbelievable!

You can tell it has been 3 days since my last blog, and with good reason! The last three days have been the most incredible, information packed days I can remember in a very long time.

ISTE Day 1-June 26

What a wonderful experience arriving in Denver for ISTE this year. The city is warm and friendly, the Volunteers are kind and helpful with a great sense of humor, and excitement abounds.

After a hurried check-in, we took off to white-water rafting at Clear Creek Rafting Company. I highly recommend this adventure tour to anyone who has some time available on Tuesday for the next round of that tour. The guides were wonderful, knowledgable and comforting. I never dreamed I would…
