ISTE in Philly is Back Again

21 Jun

It’s long overdue, but now Philly’s slammin’. And it’s because as many as 20,000 educators are descending upon the Pennsylvania Convention Center for the 2019 ISTE Conference and Expo.

I arrived tonight to stunning views of the city — a bird’s eye view, giving us a bit of calm before educators take this town by storm.

And I am excited. I am excited to learn. Excited to present 5 sessions. Excited to spend time with passionate educators both that I’ve known for years… and that I will cross paths with for the first time as our shared interests draw us into the same session or booth or event or conversation or coffee break (or even bar across the street to sneak in a bit of Women’s World Cup).

I am excited.

So, I hope see you at the conference (or at least on Twitter via @NancyeBlackEdu or using the #ISTE19 hashtag)….. and that ISTE 2019 greets you with a jet black Benz, plenty of friends, and all the Philly steaks you can eat.

Cheers!

21 Jan

I am so excited about this year’s FETC. Not only will I be connecting with some of my favorite people in edtech at one of my favorite events in edtech…. but I will also be digging in with amazing educators through 6 workshops and two concurrent sessions!

And this year, I’m not just presenting alone. Joining me for current session Teach All the Memes! is 18 year old social media guru, Laney Blair, whose #IAmMyBeautiful body positivity campaign was recently featured on BuzzFeed. And in Cultivating Empathy with Film and Other Media, award-winning feature filmmaker Kevin O’Brien will gift us with his insights on the power of media and how even 3 minute short films can transform perspective and inspire action.

This is definitely a year of workshops and sessions at FETC you won’t want to miss!
