International Society for Technology in #Education Conference #edtech


Each year hundreds of educators interested in social media, technology, teaching, and learning gather to build and participate in “unplugged”-style activities as a part of the ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) conference.

Saturday, June 22rd – HACK EDUCATION: 8:00am – 4:00pm in the San Antonio Convention Center, Room SACC 103A. Audrey Watters of HackEducation.com co-chairs our all-day flagship event this year, as we yet again rebrand our “unconference” on teaching and learning (for years called EduBloggerCon and then called SocialEdCon last year). In our seventh year, this event typically draws 200 – 300 participants from around the world. We start by building a session and topic schedule together, and then spend the rest of the day in engaged conversations around what are always amazing topics. More information and a sign-up page (not required) at http://www.isteunplugged.com/sat-622-hack-education.html.

Saturday, June 22nd Evening – HACK-ED AFTER PARTY!: After a banner inaugural partner last year, we’ll again have an unconference “After Party” from 7 – 9pm the Marriott Riverwalk, 2nd floor, salons A/B. Generously sponsored by StudyBlue and Follett, the first 150 to arrive get a drink ticket (and maybe something else!). Munchies will be available, but plan to eat dinner before or after depending on what time zone your stomach is still in. (StudyBlue is also inviting a small group of classroom educators to dish and dine with them at 5:30pm. Get a sneak preview of new technology and brainstorm ideas for teacher/student use, while enjoying dinner and drinks with fellow educators. To learn more contact info@studyblue.com.)

Sunday, June 23rd Afternoon – GLOBAL EDUCATION SUMMIT: Another return event, the Global Ed Summit is a 3-hour mini-conference organized by Lucy Gray and Steve Hargadon (well, actually, organized by Lucy with Steve as support staff) for those interested in globally-connecting students and teachers, and is a physical followup to the hugely popular online Global Education Conference. All welcome! More information is at http://www.globaleducationconference.com/group/gec-summit-at-iste.

Monday, June 24 – EdTechWomen at ISTE 2013 Dinner: For the first time at ISTE, EdTechWomen will be hosting a dinner and community networking event for women and their supporters in education technology. The mission of EdTechWomen is to connect women across sub-industries and to leverage women’s influence in education, now and for the future.

Monday, June 24 – Wednesday, June 26th – THE BLOGGERS’ CAFE: Also in it’s seventh year now, the Bloggers’ Cafe is an informal, couch-chairs-floor gathering area in the conference center for bloggers, social media mavens, and anyone else who wants to find and connect with others. A beehive of constant activity and conversation, the Bloggers’ Cafe makes it hard to go do anything else once you discover it. All are welcome, and if someone doesn’t notice you or introduce you to a group you want to meet, please introduce yourself! More information at http://www.isteunplugged.com/mon-624—wed-626-bloggers-cafe.html.

Thanks to Steve Hargadon for putting this lost together via the Global Education Conference International Advisory Board.
