Good afternoon from San Antonio, Texas where I have just checked-in at the ISTE 2017 conference. The conference doesn’t officially begin until tomorrow, but there is already plenty of activity around the convention center. When I checked-in I was asked, “what are you looking for at the conference?” My answer was, “things that empower students to be creators and examples of students creating and sharing with the world.” As it turns out, there is a strand of poster presentations directly related to that idea of students as publishers.
Of course, I’m here to report on the things that matter to those of you who cannot attend the conference. That’s why I created this short survey to find out what you want me to report on. Please take one minute to submit a suggestion.
