A Star Wars Guide to #ISTE13
7/10/2013 By: By Nicholas Provenzano (a.k.a. The Nerdy Teacher)
This summer I will be attending
my 4th ISTE conference. I’ve been
thinking of a fun way to share this
information and wanted to do a
quote-based post. So, here is your
Star Wars Guide to ISTE13.
“I’ve got a bad feeling about this.”
This is one of the most spoken lines in all of the
Star Wars movies. For ISTE, this line has a very
important meaning. If you walk into a session
and your gut tells you this is not going to go
well, get up and get out. This conference is not
cheap, so why waste money on a session you
will not find helpful?
“This is some rescue. You came in
here and you didn’t have a plan for
getting out?” … “He’s the brains,
Take time and create a plan for your time at
ISTE. Make sure you put in plenty of time for
breaks, meals and hanging with friends. A good
plan will make for a great ISTE.
“I find your lack of faith disturbing.”
It is important to keep an open mind when at
ISTE. Try going to sessions on topics you are
not familiar with instead of sessions you know
plenty about. Also, be confident in what you
know and do not be afraid to share with others.
“Laugh it up, fuzzball!”
One of the most important things to remember
about ISTE is to have fun. You are going to be
surrounded by some of the nerdiest people
in the country who care about all of the same
things you do. Now is the time to let your hair
down and have a good time.
