Global Adventures at ISTE 2015

Once again - the 13th year in a row - I made the trip across the Pacific to attend the International Society for Technology in Education conference - this year in Philadelphia again.

With about 20,000 people attending ISTE 2015 was its usual hectic and inspiring event. This year I went with the role and associated duties of Global Collaboration PLN President. I also ran a workshop, and co-presented a Global Poster and a presentation....amongst other things. One of the highlights was the Global Education day organised by Lucy Gray and Steve Hargadon where 300+ educators came together for the afternoon to explore global connections and collaborations. In addition I was able to talk to many about the book I am writing called The Global Educator and am madly finishing this off now (deadline pending!).

Here are some pics and further highlights ISTE 2015......

A big thank you to members of the ISTE Global Collaboration PLN for their hard work - running the Community Networking fair session, the Birds of a Feather gathering and our brief 'team' meeting to collect thoughts about goals for the coming year. More updates coming soon.


Congratulations to Pernille Ripp - Award winner ISTE Global Collaboration PLN for her Global Read Aloud project.


Thanks to Ann Michaelsen for co-presenting the global poster session!

Great work by Tina, Betsye and Barbara for global presentation!
