After many years of wanting to attend ISTE, I am finally on my way. I am heading to San Antonio for ISTE17, and I can’t wait. I have been to numerous VSTE state technology conferences, but this is different. This is the big time. I left Richmond, VA, at 5:25AM today, and I am currently sitting in Charlotte airport awaiting my flight to San Antonio.
I tried to prepare as best I could. I have taken the time to join several ISTE communities, which I highly recommend for anyone. I have read as much as I can about how to make the most of the conference, but there is one word that comes up time and time again…overwhelming. I am hoping, as an ISTE Rookie, to avoid this as much as I can. We shall see. I am also looking forward to meeting several of my PLN members face to face, some to renew friendships, and some to start new friendships.
If you are going to ISTE let me know. If you have any tips for me, please leave a comment. I have a feeling I will need all the help I can get! You can follow all my adventures at ISTE by following #ISTERookie!
Keep fighting the good fight.
