ISTE Day One

We always love day one of ISTE because it’s EduBloggerCon, the self-coordinated gathering of educational bloggers. This year we sat in on some great conversations starting with, appropriately enough, “Are Wikis Dead”?

A provocative topic is always a good way to draw out opinion and experience and we heard both about how wikis are of real practical importance to many educators and also how new technologies are pushing forward people’s expectations of what wikis can and should be.

Most of the other conversations we sat in on were opportunities for us to learn about the day to day challenges of the teachers we try to serve and as always we learned a huge amount. Thanks to Steve and his team for putting everything together and to everyone we listened to and especially those who introduced themselves to us with thanks and challenges.

Read more about our presentation on Wednesday, party, and office hours all conference long.

We’re also all over Twitter this weekend. You can find Adam as @wikispaces and James as @jbyers. You’ll also find lots of tweets under the event hashtag #iste10.

    Missed your discussion. I started a wiki for my ISTE 2010 experience too. Today should be a busy day.
