Summer is a time when a lot of educators recharge their batteries and complete professional development opportunities either face-to-face or virtually. Powerful Learning Practice (PLP) is excited to once again have the opportunity to offer both!
Our first summer eCourse, Connected Coaching, is off and running with a fabulous group of knowledgable and energized participants. If you’d like to join one of our other eCourses this summer (topics include flipped instruction, mobile learning, teaching online, Web 2.0 tools, etc.), spots are still available. Click here to join one of our upcoming July course sections and let the learning begin. Graduate credit is also available.
This week we are heading out West (to San Diego, CA) to participate in ISTE’s 33rd annual conference. We’ll officially kick off the conference tomorrow (June 22nd) with the State Educational Technology Directors Association (SETDA). We are excited to be participating in their 2012 Emerging Technologies Forum and look forward to meeting everyone.
Starting Monday, we’ll be in the Exhibit Hall, Booth #2044. We’d love to meet you and tell you more about our program, educational philosophies, and what exciting things we have in store for the 2012-2013 school year. Not to mention we’ll be giving away some great prizes and we don’t mind sharing our knowledge on what to see and do while you’re in San Diego.

Are you an international participant? Peter Skillen (PLP Community Leader) is serving as an ISTE Ambassador this year. “The ISTE Ambassador Program is designed to connect international members to each other and to the resources in their respective country or region. There are many events taking place at the conference with a focus on ISTE’s global resources and initiatives that you may want to consider attending.” On Sunday June 24th from 7-8pm there will be a Global Happy Hour (Expanding Horizons) throughout the convention center. You’ll be able to “enjoy snacks, beverages and entertainment while you take a tour of ISTE’s global initiatives and network with other attendees who have traveled to the conference from outside the United States.” Peter will be at the ISTE Ambassador station during the happy hour, so be sure to stop by and say hello!
Safe travels to all who are attending. We look forward to learning and sharing with everyone!
