While technology is clearly ISTE’s primary identity, for those four days in San Antonio, ISTE promoted something else for the 21,000+ people in attendance.
ISTE put learning first.
At this conference of countless sessions, Inspire! talks, inspired educators and tired feet, three themes became obvious to me:
- The need to focus on teaching students how to learn.
- Learning is global and connected.
- There is danger in a single story – our job is to help students find their own story.
