NotatISTE2017

This time last year, I was attending the ISTE conference in Denver, Colorado. But, unfortunately this year I am #NotatISTE.

Even though I am not there in person, I can attend parts of the conference virtually. Here are some of the ways to do that:

1. Twitter – you don’t need to be a member of Twitter to take part in the conversations there. A great place to get ideas for use in the classroom, tools to use on your blog and other educators to chat with around the world.  You do need to be a Twitter member, though, if you want to include your opinion on any of the topics.

Follow hashtags on Twitter – #ISTE2017, #ISTE17, #NotatISTE2017, #NotatISTE17

2. #NotatISTE Google+ Community – this began a few years ago and now has thousands of teachers and educators around the world participating in this community. You have a chance to create your own avatar and include it on your own badge with ribbons. There is a Daily Challenge as well as a general challenge for the conference period.

3. ISTE unplugged live – sessions run by educators not attending ISTE and using the Blackboard Collaborate rooms for the presentations.

4. Periscope – follow educators as they video what is happening at ISTE. Check out #passthescopeedu and their weebly found here, Shelly Sanchez has part of the keynote here.

5. Follow Sue Waters who has created a great blog post about NotatISTE and how she makes the most of attending the conference virtually.

6. Flipboard – a way to curate lots of blog posts relating to ISTE

7. Livebinders – another way to curate resources from ISTE
