Here at ISTE 2012 one of the best warm-ups to the actual conference is the open conference that occurs just before the main run of things on Saturday. Labelled the SocialEdCon this year, the event looks like it will really take off!
Just to get a taste for the possible sessions for this crowded room:
Running Virtual Conferences
Social Media in the School and Issues in Bullying
Teaching Teachers Tech Quickly
Get down here (or up actually) if you are in San Diego.
