The International Society for Technology in Education has initiated an online petition urging the White House to take action to invest in school broadband connectivity to bridge the digital divide in education.
Planning to catch this year’s American Library Association (ALA) annual conference in Anaheim, CA? If you’re anything like us, you’ll want to make every second count. That’s why we’ve asked seven savvy librarians to give us the skinny on the top five sessions they plan to attend during the June 21–26 event. As you’ll see, they came up with an eclectic mix that’s bound to make nearby Disneyland’s power couple, Mickey and Minnie, a mere distraction.
ISTE is the conference that I most look forward to attending each year. As my school’s media specialist and tech leader, it’s essential that my colleagues view me as a constant source of new ideas—and ISTE helps me to be that. It also helps me to stay current with the latest developments in the global ed-tech community. The conference is an incredible opportunity to learn from and network with other educators who are also working to harness the power of technology to enhance teaching and learning in their schools.
