ISTE 2012

Just over a week before I board an air plane on my way to San Diego and my third ISTE conference! I am determined to make the most of it since I rather suspect it will be my last for a long time. (Time and cost!). With so many choices and great presenters it is really hard to chose how to get the most out of the time there. I remember writing this down after Philadelphia last year:

As a second time visitor to ISTE I felt pretty confident that I would be able to learn a lot, meet new people and be amazed. I did accomplish all of the above, but wish I had more time, had networked more and had attended more presentations. Not to mention that I did not spend any time at the Bloggers’ cafe.

My advice to first time visitors:

  1. ISTE’s10 Tips for ISTE 2012 Attendees: Making the Most of Your Conference Experience
  2. Join the people at the Blogger’s cafe and SocialEdCon, find dates time and info here!
  3. Look for info here: Cybraryman Internet Catalogue
  4. Be sure to visit the Newbie Lounge – info here!
  5. Sign up here to find people to follow on Twitter

My plan this far: attend these presentations and spend time in the Newbie Lounge and Bloggers cafe! See you!
