ISTE 2017 starts this weekend. If you’re going – enjoy. If you’re not — stay tuned to the 10-Minute Teacher Podcast on Friday when Peggy George talks about how to participate in all of the #notatiste17 activities. We all win when ISTE happens, so don’t feel left out. PowerSchool is making it possible for me to attend and share. Thank you, PowerSchool!
As of three weeks ago – #notatiste17 was my plan. But then, some friends at PowerSchool called.
You see, Hardeep Gulati, the CEO, and his team had put together a stellar panel on the trends shaping teaching today. They asked me to moderate the panel. Excited! So, I said yes!
PowerSchool has a fantastic, reliable SIS. They also bought Haiku Learning and have since created PowerSchool Learning, the best learning management system (in my opinion.)
In addition, PowerSchool has a fantastic announcement coming Monday. (Hardeep will be on my podcast Monday to share the announcement for those of you not going to ISTE.)
The only challenge is that my toe may be broken, so be patient with me. Drop by and say hi.
The best thing about ISTE is my friends. Thank you, PowerSchool for doing this. As always, every chance to speak is a gift. I’ll do my best to “bring it” for those of you who add me to your busy ISTE 2017 program.
