The last week of June I am attending the Badge Summit (opens in new tab) and ISTE convention in my hometown, San Antonio. This will be my newborn, Savannah’s, first ISTE. Savvy and I will be Periscoping as ISTE Media Reporters. Watch our first Periscope video here to find out why this ISTE is so special for Savvy and our family!
Follow us on Twitter, @ShellTerrell, to catch the livestream or to catch up with us during the conference. We’d love to meet you face-to-face and interview you. Don’t miss out on the virtual events and contests shared via the hashtag, #NotAtISTE and #PassthescopeEDU. Below, find a list of other events (some free) in San Antonio for you to attend!
