ISTE 2014 Reflections

Well, it's been a month since returning from ISTE 2014 in Atlanta and it's taken about that long for me to come down from the learning high and have some time to reflect and take it all in. Team Creighton (there were 5 of us this year!) had a great time of learning, listening, discovering, communicating, and even just having some fun.

No matter how many times you attend the conference, it never gets old. There are always so many new things to learn about and new people to meet and make contact with. Here is an overview of our time in Atlanta:
  • We did several presentations - 4 in all - and attended a lot of great presentations and poster sessions. Lots of great things to share and implement during the coming year.
  • Learned about lots of new online tools and updates to existing ones. 
  • We met up with old friends, like Dr. Alice Christie, and made new ones - like meeting the developers of our very favorite app - Explain Everything. The developers even came to see our poster presentation where we had examples of student work created in Explain Everything.
  • We ate lots of good food, went up to the 72nd floor of the Westin Hotel overlooking the city, and attended some vendor sponsored social events.
  • We were sad to leave but ready for next year! ISTE 2015 here we come.
