ISTE 2017: The ultimate game plan of what you can’t miss


Getting the most from ISTE 2017’s jam-packed conference next week.

Must-See Sessions

Poster sessions give attendees the opportunity to walk around and hear about many different topics within just a few hours. Miller’s must-see poster sessions include Using Coding to Enhance Literacy, Integrating MakerSpace Technology into Library Programming, and Empowering Student Voice & Narratives through Space, Digital Stories, & Innovative Practice.

He is also looking forward to Online Professional Learning: Meet the Webinators with edWeb.net. During this session, conference attendees can learn about edWeb professional learning, watch popular edWebinar clips, and connect with edWebinar presenters, or “webinators.”

Last, attendees shouldn’t miss keynote speakers Jad Abumrad, host and creator of public radio’s Radiolab; Jenny Magiera, Chief Innovation Officer of Des Plaines Public Schools; and Reshma Saujani, founder and CEO of Girls Who Code.

Maximize Floor Time

The exhibit hall will be full of things to see, so use your time here efficiently. Spend time reviewing the floor plan before you arrive so you know where your must-sees are. Come prepared with a bag to collect any swag that booths will be giving away.

Miller recommended pre-printing labels with your information to hand to booths that are doing giveaways, saving you time and ensuring your information is always legible. Keep in mind, some exhibitors give sessions right at their booths, which will be a perfect opportunity to connect with experts.

Make the most out of your time at ISTE by planning ahead for your must-sees and knowing your game plan.
