So today I head out of town to Atlanta for the ISTE 2014 conference. I can’t wait to get there. This conference is always so full of information, I never have time to gather it all together, but I always know I will come back with some valuable information. As always, I will be posting articles about each session I attend. Hopefully the few of you that follow me will find this information handy. My goal this year is to increase my postings on this site in an effort to get my thoughts down and create a knowledge base for questions that teachers have throughout the course of the year.
If you aren’t familiar with the ISTE conference or the organization, I highly recommend you check it out. ISTE is the International Society for Technology in Education. Formerly known as NECC (National Education Computing Conference), ISTE has generated a large knowledge base of information regarding technology for the classroom. Additionally, they are at the forefront of developing standards for computer science in the classroom and technology in teaching. My primary interest is as a Professional Development teacher and Instructional Coach.

All of the information on these pages is very valuable in guiding technology instruction. Check it out.
