Heading to ISTE 2012 in San Diego

I have spent the past few days in beautiful southern Georgia working with my friend and Flat Classroom co-founder, Vicki Davis (Cool Cat Teacher) on plans for next year with our Flat Classroom projects, live events and teacher professional development. Tomorrow I head to San Diego for ISTE 2012. First to attend the 2-day ISTE Board meeting, and then to participate in all things ISTE from Saturday through to Wednesday next week! It is a very busy time and I hope to meet up with many virtual colleagues face-to-face again this year, as well as many new friends!
