ISTE: Days of Learning and Connecting!

This Saturday morning we will board our flight to San Antonio and ISTE 2013! We have spent the past 6 weeks working hard and preparing for this epic conference. We are extremely excited to connect with some many of our Twitter PLN friends!

We are hitting the ground running as soon as we step foot off the place in San Antonio! We are very lucky to be getting a behind the scenes look at the San Antonio Zoo augmented reality app SA Zoo-AR. The San Antonio Zoo is the first major zoo to launch an augmented reality campaign. The app was created by Zoo-AR and Founder Jeremy Kenisky will be explaining to us how they use augmented reality to educate and engage kids. 

We have our days packed with sessions by "Game Changing" educators! Some of our CANT MISS session are:
  • Kevin Honeycutt's Create using today's technology tools (Monday 5:30-6:45 Outside Room 208 at the Blogger's Cafe)
  • The Tomorrow Toolkit session by our friend Erin Klein, Keynote Adam Bellow, Kyle Pace, and Michelle Baldwin (Wednesday 8:30-9:30 at 008AB SACC) 
  • Augmenting the Classroom! by James Kapptle (Monday 11:00-12:00 at 007AB)

There are many more exciting and amazing sessions that will take place over the 5 days in San Antonio.

Brad and I will be coming to ISTE with great augmented reality goodies to give away and a few surprises! You will have to connect with us at ISTE to find out what those surprises are! 

We will be updating everything that happens at ISTE on Twitter @TechMinock and @Techbradwaid . We will also be updating our blog as much as possible throughout the week with exciting news and events.
