LIVE BLOG of the ISAS Teacher Conference #isastc

31 01 2012

Every two years, the Independent School Association of the Southwest holds their Biannual Teacher Conference. This is a rich experience of listening to challenging speakers present some of the latest in the field of education. This year’s lineup is sure to challenge the thinking of all who participate. I am fortunate enough to be able to attend this year in Houston and will be Live Blogging the six speaking sessions. It is my hope that you might consider joining along on this journey as you have the time.

It is easy to follow along from a distance. You simply follow the links I have provided here for the session you are interested in and set up a reminder for that session. You can then join when the session starts. While you will not be able to hear the audio from the session, I will be reporting live from the session. You will be able to join the conversation with all who might be following from a distance through the chat tool. My task is to accurately represent what is going on in the session so that those who follow from a distance can also benefit and engage in the conversation. If you are in the session and are tweeting, use the #isastc hash tag and so your tweets will be easy for others to follow. This will also allow these tweets to enter the session stream for the live blog.

Below is the schedule with links to each LIVE BLOG launch page
