When I couldn’t go to ISTE in 2006 (It used to be called NECC) – this is what I did – I wrote a whole series of virtual posts that year and many people even thought I was there! Here is what I did back then to encourage those of you who are left at home.
Health teachers and coaches will find some interesting lesson plans for teaching their subjects. It is fascinating to see the types of things being downloaded relating to this topic including a “shot put teaching card”, “orienteering and fitness activities” some gymnastics lessons and swimming skill cards. Health teachers will appreciate these lessons.
Right now you can upload and share lessons and win a $500 Staples gift card.
Here is information on Share my lesson – a place where I’m sharing lessons and connecting. All the lessons are free. This is created and co-sponsored by the AFT and TES (out of the UK) but any teacher (like me) can join and share. Disclaimer: I have been doing some work promoting TES resources for the past months – see my blog for full information.
Excellent post by Lee Kolbert for ISTE presenters and attendees.
You should read this page if you’re at ISTE and if you’re not. It is created using Smore – an app recommended at the smackdown today. It includes many of the other events of iste that you’ll want to join.
Jerry Blumengarten has created an excellent set of resources on Pinterest for educators.
I’ll be presenting on Tuesday for remote ISTE with Maggie Tsai talking about social bookmarking as part of research (I’ll also include some slides on common core from my new book Collaborative Writing in the Cloud from eye on education.) Here’s information on all the ways you can participate remotely.
