The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

ISTE 2012 is coming up in mid June. The newest, best thing about attending Education Conferences is the number of connected educators who attend. Attendees get to meet face to face with people they have had a connected relationship with before ever meeting in real life. I would like to use this discussion place to connect with people before the conference even opens. It would be great to let us know if you are attending and how to best follow you. Twitter is my connection method of choice. Follow me at @tomwhitby on Twitter. I will be tweeting details of the event as the conference unfolds. If you are not attending the conference in person, following those who are, is a great way to get a feel for the conference. This is all part of being connected educators. So, to sum up: will you be attending #ISTE12, and what is your Twitter handle? Feel free to add any other comments as well.

I will be returning to ISTE!  I know it is going to be amazing! @sjgorman

It's going to be exciting to meet lots of new people, have great conversations, and also have a little fun! :)

I'll be attending ISTE for the first time. I live in San Diego, so if you have any local questions feel free to ask. (Often I even answer.) I'll be presenting on a panel on Tuesday about collaborative writing. The best way to connect is twitter, @JenRoberts1

I'll be attending for the first time.  @kfostertweet  I look forward to following the conference sessions I can't attend.

I will be there (@azjd).  Looking forward to collaborating in person with many from my PLN (and enjoying beautiful San Diego, CA).

I'll be at ISTE for the first time. I'm very excited to learn and meet some of those I follow on Twitter in person!

Looking forward to attending! @matt_arguello

I will be there and CAN'T WAIT!!! I will have to update my poster session description on here, because it is very out of date.  But if you stop by my booth on Wednesday, I will have some great iPad resources for everyone.  I am @ipadsammy on Twitter if you want to follow, and this will be my FIFTH ISTE IN A ROW!!!

I'll be there as a newbie - all the way from VA!
