I recently attended the 2018 International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) conference from June 24th - June 27th in Chicago, IL. This was my first time attending this conference. It was overwhelming, energizing, and an incredible professional development opportunity. Over 20,000 people from over 80 different countries attended the ISTE conference this year. The conference included over 1,200 sessions exploring a wide range of topics related to educational technology.

ISTE 2019 will be held in Philadelphia, PA June 23rd - June 26th. If you're passionate about utilizing technology to enhance teaching at any grade level (Kindergarten to College-level) I strongly encourage you to attend.

If you're looking to get more involved with a state-level association dedicated to educational technology please see the link below to the Association of Computer Technology Educators of Maine (ACTEM), which is affiliated with ISTE.
During my final UC Faculty Focus blog post (July, 2018) I'll be sharing materials, resources, etc. from many of the sessions I attended at ISTE, 2018.
