ISTE 2017 is almost here, and the excitement is palpable. There’s nothing quite like an education conference to cap off one school year and rev up your engines for the next.
Back when I was a classroom teacher, I remember struggling to explain to my noneducator friends and family why I looked forward to conferences so much. It was hard for them to fully understand how it felt to be freed from the day-to-day routines of teaching, planning and marking. Getting together with so many fellow teachers to share ideas, raise questions and find out the latest education developments was invigorating.
