Where to Catch Nancye Blair Black at #ISTE18!

24 Jun

It’s a beautiful morning here in Chicago. The sun has been shining since 5:15 AM!

I, for one, am so excited for this year’s ISTE Conference! Learning, networking, fun… Plus, I had the chance to work on three incredible projects that ISTE is launching this year, so being here to share in this moment of powerful growth in the edtech field is incredibly meaningful as well. (More info on those to follow!)

This year at the conference, I’m most looking forward to two things — continuing to support my fellow edtech-ers through my presentations AND connecting with those who are passionate about transforming education.

A list of my sessions is below. If you can make it, I would love to see you there. Be sure to say hi!

And if you can’t make it to the sessions, don’t hesitate to say hello in the hall, at a reception, or to reach out via Twitter (@NancyeBlackEdu) to connect for coffee or a drink! These connections are what ISTE is all about!
