Today is National Selfie Day. To celebrate I am sending you on a mission to create memorable conference experiences this year and go on an an Epic Selfie Conference Adventure. To complete this mission you will take at least 5 selfie images or videos, which meet any of the challenges listed below. Feel free to come up with your own challenges. Then post these selfies using the conference hashtag and #EdtechMissions. I hope you will complete this selfie adventure with me at ISTE this year.

I write about the significance of selfies for today’s digital learners in my upcoming book, Hacking Digital Learning Strategies: 10 Ways to Launch EdTech Missions in Your Classroom. Selfies are an important part of our students’ digital identity and experience and help them humanize their digital experience. By completing the selfie challenges you will step out of your comfort zone, meet new educators, and be able to understand more about our students’ digital culture.

Selfie Missions

  • Take a selfie with an author, speaker, or presenter you admire
  • Take an usie, a group selfie
  • Take a foodie, a selfie with you tasting the local cuisine
  • Take a selfie visiting a local landmark.
  • Take a party selfie! Conferences are packed with events. Take a selfie singing karaoke with friends or simply having a good time connecting with educators.
  • Take an expo selfies, a selfie with some of your favorite educational vendors. Visiting the expo area will also get you some free swag!
  • If you’re at ISTE, take a selfie with me and my newborn, Savvy, who will be celebrating her first ISTE!
