It was a huge week of learning at the ISTE11 Conference. Of that, there is no doubt, as I promptly had a nap after returning home. I was totally exhausted but thoroughly excited with the things that are bouncing around in my head. ISTE11 in Philadelphia was a great opportunity for networking with friends world-wide. It was great to catch up with friends from the United States, Australia, Great Britain, and of course, friends from Canada.
The reception hosted by the Canadian Consulate and MindShareLearning was a great opportunity to dress up and do a lot of networking. It was terrific to see the number of Ontario Educators who made their way to Philadelphia. Using Animaps, I figured that the travel paths might have looked like this.
From Ontario, it was great to see…
- (Linda from London)
Just to extend a bit, there were a number of other Canadian educators to give a shout-out too.
- (guy from Newfoundland and another from Saskatchewan but didn’t get Twitter handles)
The problem with creating lists is one of omission. I hope that I got everyone. Please let me know if you were there and I didn’t include you above and accept my apologies.
The whole out of conference experience was put over the top by our host and guest Canadian for the event @DoReMiGirl who joined us for the International Reception and Canadian Educator Reception.
Sadly, I didn’t get a chance to meet @gcouros and @sram_socrates. But, that opens the door to necessitate heading to another learning get together!
