Just went to my first EdTechWomen Atlanta meet-up last Sunday. What an engaging and vibrant group of educators who also happen to be into maximizing educational technology and learning in our schools today. This is a national organization with chapters in cities across the U.S. By checking this link you can find out if your city already has a chapter, http://edtechwomen.com/chapters/ . If you don’t see your city you might want to think about starting a chapter. All the information for doing this is right there. The main thing is to get active making a change in your world. No matter how small the rock there are always ripples when it enters the water, Don’t ever thing your efforts are too small or not needed. Only with concentrated, concerted effort will the students of today begin getting an education that will prepare them for tomorrow. We must work to bring education out of the age of dinosaurs and into the age of AR.
It’s like the night before Christmas here in Atlanta as ISTE 2014 opens tomorrow with ISTE “Unplugged” down at the Georgia World Congress Center. Saturday is the official opening and the show will run through Tuesday July 1st. You can stay connected to all things ISTE through Twitter #ISTE2014 or @ISTEConnects. Here is a link to the “Know Before you Go” page with lots of info to help you navigate the show. http://bit.ly/1qzDfQe
