ISTE 2011 First Night


A picture inside the Pennsylvania Convention Center at the keynote session.

We arrived safe and sound in Philadelphia this afternoon. A decision by Kim when we were 80 miles out proved sage as we drove straight to the convention center and registered. We got our badges, swag and bags and literally followed the crowd to the keynote. Thanks to Twitter we got to see Rob Griffith (@rgriffithjr) and his wife, Jamie Lynn. When we first entered the keynote Kim didn’t believe we’d find seats but Dave managed to find just enough for us to enjoy the show. The room was filled with thousands of conference attendees. We hadn’t eaten all day so the chocolate bar in a Dell wrapper was a welcome treat. Dr. John Medina gave a rousing keynote and then we made our way to our nights lodging And a tasty meal at T.G.I.F.

We’ve agreed to get up early and get back down to the convention center for a full and fun day tomorrow. Hoping to keep a beginners mind so I can learn a lot.
