Trendspotting at ISTE

Who else is still catching their breath after the whirlwind of ISTE11?
I just shared a few post-ISTE reflections at Edutopia.
Thanks to those who took part in my Ripped from the Headlines session, especially my three great guests--Paul Allison, Matt Van Kouwenberg, and Katherine Schulten. Details from the session, including links to resources and a guide to using the New York Times Learning Network, are available on the ISTE Ning. And if you're interested in working with colleagues to plan a newsy project for the upcoming school year, be sure to check out the Edutopia wiki. It's bare-bones now, but will grow as we begin brainstorming and adding resources.
Finally, if you didn't get a chance to come to Philadelphia, take a few minutes to listen to the closing keynote by Chris Lehmann, principal of Science Leadership Academy. Guaranteed to inspire!
