Ontario Educators at #ISTE11

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…

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!


  1. Hi Doug,
    Let’s add @iglooz2 to your list! She’s a special education coordinator from UGDSB and her name is Carla Anderson. I’m not sure if I had a chance to introduce the two of you on Tuesday night!

    You’ll have to meet at ECOO11 instead! It would be great to get @doremigirl @gcouros and @sram_socrates to Ontario wouldn’t it?
