We saw some amazing things at ISTE 2015! From great responses to our question to educators of "why?", to meaningful conversations with customers, to meeting Estella Pyfrom of Estella's Brilliant Bus, the conference was exactly the dose of motivation we all need from time to time.
Summer is a huge opportunity for professional development. Dedicated teachers around the country will be spending their “free time” attending conferences, reading books, and doing anything else they can to grow as an educator.
We at Edmentum always like to tool around the bookshelves at the beginning of the summer and winter breaks to unearth the new gems that teachers might want to check out during these uninterrupted pleasure reading times. As always, beach reads are also allowed.
Technology has put vast amounts of information at students’ fingertips. But, does this mean that they effectively consume it? And where does this leave teachers? As the leading event for technology in education, ISTE 2015 is a great forum to explore these questions and gain insight into what the answers may be.
