Moving at the Speed of Creativity by Wesley Fryer

Tweeted Learning from ISTE 2016

As I did for iPadPalooza in Austin last week, I’ve created a Storify archive of the 500+ tweets and retweets I shared this week from the ISTE Conference in Denver, Colorado. Before I embed the Storify archive, however, I’ll single out a few notable tweets.

Tuesday I shared a poster session (and was greatly assisted by my wife, Shelly) on “Show What You Know With Media: What Do You Want to Create Today?” The following response tweet from Darren Anderson of Rock Springs, Wyoming (@coachdarin22) was really gratifying. A few others like it during the conference confirm to me that the website and media advocacy project is continuing in the right direction.

During my lecture presentation today, “AppSmash to YouTube,” I made a point to say “you can quote me on this” when I repeated one of my favorite phrases, “Video is the pencil of the 21st century.” A number of attendees took me up on my request, and I appreciate it!

I probably set a personal record for selfies this week at ISTE, and there are lots I really love. This one with the Hookers was certainly a favorite! Carl suggested the tagline. This either sounds like a band or a nightclub…

Sunday morning before ISTE I had an opportunity to share a keynote with the 2016 PBS Digital Innovators, and I appreciated several attendees (including Wanda Terral (@wterral) amplifying my concluding message: “Grow where you are rooted and sing your song.”

I also appreciated Dan Koch (@danvkoch) creating an infographic during the PBS Digital Summit to amplify a statement I’ve made several times now in keynotes about social media access in the United States versus other countries like North Korea, Iran, Turkey, Pakistan, etc.

Last of all, during our PBS Digital Innovator “EdCamp” led by Hadley Ferguson (@hadleyjf), Lisa Johnson (@techchef4u) shared a VERY important book I can’t wait to read and may even purchase tomorrow: “Overloaded & Underprepared: Strategies for Stronger Schools & Healthy, Successful Kids.” 

If you’d like a bit more insight into the EdCamp conversation we had about mindfulness, resiliency, and SEL (Social Emotional Learning) give a listen and watch to this 47 second “narrated sketchnote” I created on Sunday during PBS EdCamp.

There were so many other great takeaways from ISTE this year for me! If you want to check out even more, browse this Storify archive of tweets or view my #iste2016 tagged Tweets on my TweetNest archive.
