ISTE Conference 2011

by fifer1863 on June 26, 2011

Over the next few days, I will be in Philadelphia attending the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Conference.  This is the premier educational technology conference in the country and attracts over 10,000 educators from around the world.  On Tuesday, I will be presenting a session entitled, Tradigital History.  This presentation will demonstrate how to take traditional topics like using primary sources in the classroom and bringing them into the 21st Century.

Stay tuned for updates and be sure to follow me on Twitter or you can follow the ISTE Twitter hashtag at #iste11

I also hope to interview a few individuals for the podcast.
