ISTE13: Educators Hack Their Own Education

Handeducators an open wiki schedule and watch them organize themselves around thetopics they want to discuss. Educators know what they want to learn. In thespirit of an Edcamp unconference model, Hack Educationparticipants collaborated on creating the day’s schedule by suggesting topicsand volunteering to facilitate discussions. This year’s hot topics are a previewto what we’ll see at ISTE:

  • Personalized learning;
  • Fostering deeper learning;
  • 1:1 implementations;
  • BYOD; 
  • Tech integration with limited resources;
  • Making apps;
  • Learning with social media;
  • Gamification;
  • Minecraft;
  • Maker spaces;
  • Teacher management tools;
  • Teacher preparation;
  • 21st century professional development;
  • Technology coaching;
  • Global collaboration; 
  • Teaching with Google Glass. (Check out the upcoming interviewwith Adam Bellow and his experience with Glass!)

Organizedby Steve Hargadonand Audrey Watters of Hack Education,the unconference is traditionally held the day before the official ISTE launch. It's continued to grow becausethese educators embrace the opportunity to be fully integrated into thediscussion, rather than simply absorbing information in more traditionalsessions.  Educators want to share andlearn from each other.

ThoughAudrey helped organize the event, she was unable to attend at the last minute.Exciting news for Audrey will be announced next week related to her absence!

FormerlySocialEdCon andEduBloggerCon, this year’s Hack Education also saw more edtech startupslistening in on the conversations. If you want to design products that meet theneeds of educators, go to discussions like these where teachers share whatmatters to them.

And Steve knows how to throw an after party!Even folks who weren't able to arrive in time for the day's sessions stopped byto catch up with colleagues and friends before the full-blown craziness of ISTEbegins. 

If you attend future ISTEs, flying out a day early for HackEducation is well worth your time!
