What is ISTE? (Part 3: From the Comfort of your Couch)

In previous posts you learned about the International Society for Technology in Education [What is ISTE? (Part 1)] and how to stay connected all year long [What is ISTE? (Part 2: ISTE throughout the year)]. But traveling to Philadelphia for this year’s annual conference might not be in the cards for you. Never fear—this blog will help bring ISTE to you!  You can attend ISTE sessions online June 28- July 1 and follow the conference hashtag #ISTE2015.
One way to attend ISTE remotely is to participate virtually with ISTE Live. ISTE Live offers you the opportunity to attend three days of sessions from the comfort of your couch. For a fraction of the conference registration costs, you can connect to all three keynotes, over 15 sessions, and multiple peer networking opportunities. Each session recorded for ISTE Live will be moderated by a volunteer that will facilitate an online Q&A. In fact, nine of the moderated sessions will be moderated by your very own BVSD Ed Tech team members. We hope to see you online at ISTE Live!

In addition to attending live recorded sessions, you can connect to ISTE for free through the power of social media. Twitter, Google+, Instagram, and more are all used by ISTE attendees to share their professional development and learning connections. Use the hashtag #ISTE2015 to join in the conversation. Educators are already posting, so jump in now and don’t miss out!

Save the Date: Mark your calendars for the summer of 2016, when Denver will host the ISTE conference in June. This is an opportunity you cannot miss!
