Being a #RelevanEdu cator in a Digital World: #ISTE2016 Insights fr @TomWhitby + @Web20Classroom

How do teachers maintain relevance in an ever-changing digital world? Tom Whitby and Steve Anderson shared ideas with a room full of educators at #ISTE2016. One big idea is that relevant educators share freely with the world. There were several others.

Below is a recap of what they shared that stood out for me. Take a look and consider how this can impact the work you do.

Lisa Nielsen writes for and speaks to audiences across the globe about learning innovatively and is frequently covered by local and national media for her views on “Passion (not data) Driven Learning,” "Thinking Outside the Ban" to harness the power of technology for learning, and using the power of social media to provide a voice to educators and students. Ms. Nielsen has worked for more than a decade in various capacities to support learning in real and innovative ways that will prepare students for success. In addition to her award-winning blog, The Innovative Educator, Ms. Nielsen’s writing is featured in places such as Huffington Post, Tech & Learning, ISTE Connects, ASCD Wholechild, MindShift, Leading & Learning, The Unplugged Mom, and is the author the book Teaching Generation Text.
