My biggest takeaway from this whirlwind experience was a reminder about the importance of personal connections. At a time when there seems to be more concern about the emotional and physical health of students than at any previous period in history, we need to provide safe places where kids can find their way and find their passions. Jennie Magiera's amazing keynote on Tuesday highlighted multiple examples of how caring educators can both enlighten and empower students.
There is a lot more to talk about from both Jennie's Keynote and ISTE 2017. Thanks to all of my educational colleagues from around the globe for another heaping dose of inspiration!
