ISTE18 Day 1 – Highlights

We’re really excited to be attending ISTE conference in Chicago this year. I’m writing this post at the end of day 1 at the conference and we have had an awesome day and met some incredible educators and colleagues! Here are a few of our highlights from our first day…

Highlights from Day 1

1. We took part in an excellent PLN session and met some wonderful people from the Digital Storytelling Network, Librarians Network, EdTech Coaches Network, amongst many other awesome volunteers. These PLNs are working incredibly hard to improve teaching and learning across the US and the globe!

2. We got to catch up with some new and old friends! It was great to see lots of people that have used Night Zookeeper in their classroom.
