Big huge conferences matter! #ISTE18 #ISTE2018 #ditchpanel

Just left a panel discussion, headed by Matt Miller, author of Ditch That Textbook.  This panel is EXACTLY what big huge conferences can do for educators.  A panel of living, breathing, full blast, working right now, in the trenches, educators, sharing experiences, growth, failures, laughter, and love of and for our educator world.  It was spectacular.  Check out the hashtag #ditchpanel for all the great thinking!  Thanks colleagues and PLN!
