ISTE 2015 Trends We Observed
June 30, 2015 § 1 Comment
In this special episode we provide a summary of the trends we observed at the 2015 ISTE Conference in Philadelphia. We observed a number of maturing technologies: VR, 3D printers, and display boards controlled by a mobile device. We also observed a number of vendors offering curriculum and professional development for using technology–the focus this ISTE seems to be more on the implementation of technology into the curriculum rather than a focus on the introduction of new technologies and how-to use the tools. Finally, we observed and took part in a number of excellent conversations about the effective use of technology in student-centered ways. As educational technologists, we love to have heard and been part of several of these conversations.
