ISTE 2012: San Diego, California 

Point 1: "Collaborative Mentoring for New Teachers"

I'm so excited to attend ISTE this year.  I am even more excited to connect with so many friends that I collaborate with through personal learning networks, like Twitter.  This year, I am fortunate enough to present with an amazing panel of educators: @teachingwthsoul, @web20classroom, @mbteach, @bhsprincipal, @shannonmmiller, and @dmantz7.  We would love for you to mark your ISTE planners and join our discussion on Monday at 12:45: "Collaborative Mentoring for New Teachers."  I'm the lucky new teacher that gets to be a part of such an amazing group!!  I keep pinching myself.

Point 2:  "ISTE Newbie Project"

I was contacted by Jeff, from TeacherCast, to see if I'd be interested in supporting the endorsement of a paticular candidate for the ISTE Newbie Project (you can read Richard's great post about the ISTE Newbie Project here).  When I found out the candidate was Jerry, I was more than willing to offer Jeff my support.  

Please support The ISTE Newbie Project and make a small (even $5 is great!) donation... click here!

It's easy to do - just donate any amount larger than zero dollars through PayPal.  Thank you, in advance, for supporting a great teacher who is always giving to others.  Please spread the word.

Point 3: "Sir Ken Robinson will moderate the opening Keynote Panel"

from the ISTE News site:

"Creativity Expert Sir Ken Robinson to Moderate Opening Keynote Panel at ISTE 2012. TV actress and physics/chemistry teacher Mayim Bialik, PhD, is among the keynote panelists at the world's most comprehensive education technology event."

Perhaps Sir Ken Robinson is best known for one of TED's most influential Talks...
