SocialEdCon Schedule is HERE

Welcome to ISTE LIVE! 2012

The Unplugged area will be located near the Blogger's Cafe in the Sails Pavilion.
.
Have you always wanted to present at ISTE but were not selected? Or do you have a topic to present or discuss that wasn't timely when formal presentation applications were due last year, but is so now? If so, sign yourself up below!

ISTE Unplugged is held during and as a part of the International Society for Technology in Education Conference (ISTE ) June 25th - 27th. It is three days of presentations where anyone attending ISTE can sign up to present, held on-site in its own live audience area with a Promethean whiteboard, a microphone, and amplified sound (you need to bring your own presentation computer).

Special note to presenters representing commercial companies: this is not a venue for direct promotion of your commercial product, so please do not submit to present on any commercial project or product with which you have any association.

All ISTE Unplugged sessions will be streamed live through Blackboard Collaborate (formerly Elluminate) and recorded as well. (To make sure your computer is configured for Collaborate, go to HERE.) The broadcasting is taken care of by a volunteer there. All sessions slots are 30 minutes long--20 minutes to present, with 10 minutes for transition and short Q&A. If you are using a Mac laptop please make sure you have the appropriate dongle for your laptop to connect the projector.

The schedule for ISTE Unplugged is below. As this is a "wiki," to add your presentation you just click on the edit button at the top of the page and add your session ("Presentation Title," "Your Name," "Short Description & Link") then click save. Don't worry, you can't do permanent damage if you mess anything up, and you're welcome to email steve@hargadon.com for help. (And if you are successful, you've learned to edit a wiki!) Feel free to combine with others, set up multiple demos in one time slot, or in other ways be creative! After you've created your session, you can also create a link through to a notes page if you want to give more details. ISTE Unplugged also allows anyone streaming, liveblogging, back-channel chatting, Tweeting, or otherwise generating content for remote users to list those resources here in right-most column.

Title: IT Managers' perceptions of the BYO thing

I've since researched this using case studies and would like to present for 10 minutes or so, then get a discussion happening as to others' experiences

Title: P2PU + National Writing Project: What Learning for Teachers Should Be
Description:
Imagine a group of teachers actively driving their own personal learning, collaborating with their peers, working through tough challenges, refining their classroom practice, writing and creating related projects, and enjoying doing it. While this doesn’t look much like traditional professional development, it’s what we think learning for teachers should look like.
After participating in a lot of professional development that was less than inspiring, we decided to try something different. Enter the Peer 2 Peer University School of Ed: a lab for community-based peer learning for K-12 teachers. It features teacher-suggested hands-on experiences driven by each educator's own needs and classroom situations. It's about connecting, collaborating, and creating, not just reading or studying.
